The price war in Kenyan mobile market is continuing head high as Telkom Kenya lowers the mobile tariffs to one shilling/minute. The calls made from Orange to Orange will be priced one shilling, whereas, SMS will cost the same across all networks. The offer will be available for two months which likely to increase the Telkom’s subscriber base.

It has now been nearly two months that the kenyan mobile operators have been engaged in the price war, which has significantly reduced the mobile tariffs in the country.

Following the trend Zain Kenya launched the Vuka tariff which charges eight shillings/minute to all networks.
Safaricom has still not joined the league though it slashed the night calling rates to five shillings between 10pm and midnight and two shillings and fifty cents after that till 6am, on Safaricom to Safaricom network.
