Kenya’s mobile phone ownership is lower than we thought

Mobile phone ownership in Kenya, home of the world’s largest mobile money platform and one of Africa’s most mobile friendly economies, is a little lower than previously thought.

The Communications Authority of Kenya, which releases quarterly data on the sector, has revised its data collection method to include only phone lines that have used a revenue generating service in the last 90 days.
