Safaricom delays its 5G ambitions in a deleterious context between Huawei and the United States


#Convert the millions of #Kenyan 2G and 3G users into 4G consumers. #In the short term, this is #Safaricom’s immediate plan. #Not the launch of 5G. The operator has chosen to delay its plan to market the fifth generation of mobile #Internet. #This, despite the fact that he had finished testing and was planning to upgrade major urban centers to this very high-speed connectivity.

The retreat comes amid pressure from the #United #States on its allies. They want them to cut ties with #Chinese company #Huawei in the global race to roll out the 5G network, highlighting security concerns. The infrastructure of #Safaricom having been built by the #Chinese company, this inevitably raises questions.

#Safaricom’s official position on this subject is not mentioned by its CEO #Peter #Ndegwa. “We tested it (5G) in this country. #We will discuss the spectrum with the government in the background. #But in terms of immediacy, we don’t plan to go big on 5G at this point in the short term. #We still have so much room to fully exploit and use 4G before switching to 5G, ”he said only.
