Airtel Guys are Mad, or desperate


Airtel Kenya lowers call rates to Sh1

What does this mean for Safaricom share price?
Will we see a drop in voice calls or will they kaa ngumu

Very good question...

When call rates went down by 60% in Sep'10, the share price went down a whole freaking 30% averaging to 20% down since.

Now Safaricom makes 90% of its revenue on-net and Airtel wants this price to go down another 65%? Market has to respond sooner or later but I approximate another 20% down to below 4/=.

This telecoms is the most competitive sector in Kenya at the moment. Do banks even have it this bad?

Only one provider can survive this madness in the long-term and we all know which one that is. So it's time to get in, buy and hold SCOM when it drops as a result of this assault and reap big when this sideshow ends in one provider selling the business to the Chinese - we all know which one.

The jamaas went ahead and did it. Wouldn't you know it. CRAZY. Safaricom's call quality has been dismal of late, by the way

Ahhh... Ndugu @qw,

Here you are. Please let me know when you are available to buy me those beers courtesy of KPLC. I am glad you will have to spend a mere 1/- to let me know where I can quench my parched throat.

Between airtel and safcom. The company that will win this war, is the one that can afford to continue with this competition the longest. The winner wont come out unscathed, but will also be seriously injured.

Sina hisa za Airtel so what do I care? I am glad I sold my all my Safaricom as well... So the BEST investment for me is 'A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned'... Asante Airtel & Hongera Wateja...

Is it a promo or a closed deal ,business as usual. One silver lining in safcm,they remembered to retain MJ. This brother still has some killer cards. Lets watch n see.

Hii itakuwa mchezo wa paka na panya. Safcom will respond, maybe cutting on-net calls to 2 bob thereby halting any migration BUT as earlier stated, as consumers we should be delighted. The battle will be for new customers. Portability will have to wait till April

Safcom shares are rubish as it is... Airtel will sell the company at a profit once they have more customers, which must have been their plan all along...Come quick, market the name, increase the customer base then back to the bottom line. methinks they'll sell it by year aug, 2011.

Safaricom I believe, are also working hard to chase customers away. What's with the poor network and irregular billings?
