Telkom Kenya has announced that its mobile arm Orange Mobile has connected a million customers in its first eight months of operation. The company has invested over KES10 billion (USD134 million) in its network infrastructure and attributes its customer growth to its ‘value driven tariffs’. Dominique Saint-Jean, Telkom Kenya’s CEO, said, ‘The success we are celebrating today is not accidental. It has been hard won, thanks to the unceasing commitment and incredible energy of our employees, the loyalty of our customers, the support from our suppliers, the confidence from our investors and the interest from the media. So I would like to say that today is not about Telkom Kenya – it is about all of you, the people who have played such a valuable role in our shared journey to our first million customers.’
