Airtel Kenya 01xx prefixes await CAK approval

Airtel Kenya

After Airtel Kenya exhausted its 07xx phone number prefixes, the company is yet to get approval from the Communication Authority of Kenya to start using o1xxx prefixes.

This comes as a result of the increasing number of subscribers Airtel expects to get in future.

Currently, Airtel customers are using 0730-0739, 0750-0756, and 0785-0789 prefixes.

The new 01xxprefixes that the telecommunication company will use are 0100, 0101, and 0102.

From the latest CAK statistics report of the telecommunication sector, Airtel’s market share improved a great deal from 11% in the last quarter to 23.4%.

So far, the company has 11.56 million subscribers.
