Safaricom targets 4 million additional customers to its network with the introduction of SIM cards with the 0112, 0113, 0114, and 0115 prefixes at all Safaricom Shops and Dealers Outlets countrywide.

Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa says the new phone numbers will help meet a strong demand for their services, especially driven by new mobile data customers.

Growing demand for data has seen Safaricom introduce ‘4G for Home’ internet that consists of a 4G enabled SIM card and a 4G router that takes advantage of Safaricom’s countrywide 4G+ network to provide high-speed home internet in areas outside the company’s home fibre coverage.

Other Safaricom prefixes include 070X, 071X, 072X, 074X, 0757, 0758, 0759, 0768, 0769 and 079X.
