Safaricom to Launch its Commerical Operations in Ethiopia

Safaricom has announced they are going to be launching thier commerical operations in Ethiopia later this year.

In a recent announcement, Safaricom disclosed that they are planning to launch commercial operations in Ethiopia in this year. This news follows the announcement of the starting of the large-scale customer pilot of its network in Dire Dawa.

This is an important milestone as the telco begins opening its network to customers in order to test the end-to-end readiness of technical and commercial operations ahead of full network launch. 

We thank the Government of Ethiopia, the Dire Dawa City Administration, the Ethiopian Communications Authority, community leaders, network, IT and distribution partners and all stakeholders for all their support towards realizing this and future milestones. We will continue to share updates, as we extend the network and customer pilot across other regions, towards our National Launch in October 2022.

Anwar Soussa, Chief Executive Officer, Safaricom Ethiopia
