Summary
Kenya is one of the largest telecom service markets in East Africa, with estimated revenue of $2.3bn in 2015, a 4.4% increase on the previous year. Mobile data is a major growth driver and will generate $946m or 41.7% of total revenue in 2015, boosted by increased mobile Internet access and the expansion of mobile money services such as Safaricom's M-Pesa and Airtel Money. Pyramid Research expects to see overall service revenue grow at a CAGR of 5.4% over the 2015-2020 period in dollar terms.

Key Findings
- Pyramid Research expects to see overall service revenue grow at a CAGR of 5.4% over the 2015-2020 period in dollar terms. The fixed/mobile revenue split is forecast to remain stable and continue to be dominated by mobile services. The drivers of service revenue growth include expansion of mobile coverage to underserved areas, increased Internet access and the rise in usage of value-added services such as mobile money.

- 3G subscriptions will account for 24.0% of mobile subscriptions at year-end 2015. Safaricom is currently the sole provider of 4G services in Kenya. Airtel Kenya and Orange Kenya have been given permission to test 4G ahead of possible license award. Pyramid Research expects the wide rollout of 4G to begin in 2016.

- The total number of broadband access lines will grow by 23.6% year-over-year to 130,000 in 2015. The rollout of fiber-optic cable will continue to drive growth, but we expect the number of xDSL lines to also grow steadily over the forecast period.
