The Indian telecommunications company, Airtel, has launched fourth-generation (4G) internet in Kenya.

The country has seen the introduction of 4G from Telkom Kenya in June last year, and then from Safaricom several months later in December.

“Airtel is committed to continuously innovate and improve the quality of its products and services for a delightful customer experience,” commented Prasanta Das Sarma, CEO of Airtel Kenya.

“We believe we have launched our 4G service at the most opportune time especially now that many customers have access to more 4G enabled handsets and devices.”

As part of the launch, Airtel is offering a promotional deal of double data for those with 4G handsets and 4G SIM cards and a month data subscription.

Earlier this year, the telecom invested Sh2.53bn (US$25mn) into a 4G license fee.
