According to the telco’s unaudited results for the six months ended 30 September 2021, Fixed service and wholesale transit revenue grew 21.1% YoY to KShs 5.5 Billion supported by 20.1% growth in enterprise revenue to KShs 3.5Billion and 22.9% growth in consumer revenue to KShs 2.0Bn.

“FTTH penetration now stands at 63.9% with 360.9k homes passed in HY22. Fixed Line Service ARPU (Consumer & Enterprise) declined 6.1% YoY driven by migration of Enterprise customers to the Fixed LTE product which has a lower average revenue per user (ARPU),” the company reported.
