Nairobi trip report: Understanding Kenya's digital infra ecosystem

Ahead of Meetup Africa, TowerXchange put boots on the ground to paint a picture of Kenya's digital infrastructure ecosystem

With TowerXchange Meetup Africa moving for the first time to Nairobi and running alongside our sister events ITW and Datacloud, I travelled to Kenya in June alongside ITW Commercial Manager Paul Robinson to understand the country’s growing connectivity infrastructure ecosystem.

Kenya has one of Africa’s most advanced connectivity infrastructure ecosystems, owing the country’s heavy adoption of digital services. The use of mobile money, particularly Safaricom’s M-PESA, was a part of daily life in Nairobi, and all sorts of institutions from government to enterprise to street vendors actively use mobile money payment.

Safaricom, Kenya’s largest MNO and one of the largest institutions in Kenya, faces rising competition from Airtel Kenya, who has been aggressively competing for market share.
