The service enables customers to have the benefit of a fixed line that can be taken out of the house or office and used like a mobile within the customer’s region. Customers can also roam nationally outside of their region.
Benito Lee, Samsung’s managing director, commented. “We are very committed in this partnership with Telkom Kenya to avail the best of technology at the best prizes to every Kenyan across the country.”
