The steadily growing ICT and telecommunications industry contributed 12.1% to Kenya’s GDP of US$44bn in 2013. Currently, mobile penetration at 76.9%, internet penetration at 52.3% and broadband penetration at 3.54% show there is opportunity for growth in the industry. The mobile market is set to change as new companies have received licences to enter the market, while two players are in the process of exiting the market. The country has a strong mobile money transfer service sector that showed 10.8% growth in 2013. The Kenyan government’s Vision 2010 policy has earmarked the telecommunications industry as one of the pillars on which to build the country’s economy. This has resulted in increased investment by government to make Kenya a hub of telecommunications innovation and a focus on generating policy and legislation to support ICT growth.
