Several subscribers were left in a dismayed state when Safaricom network hit a low on Wednesday leading to a number of questions being raised on whether it’s something that has been occurring quite frequently.

As usual the company was quick to respond by sending a statement to newsrooms stating that there was an issue with their 2G, 3G and Wimax Services.

The company’s Corporate Affairs Director Mr Nzioka Waita said the outage affected Karen, Langata, Westlands, Kinoo and parts of the Central Business District.

He said the network outage started from about 4.25am Wednesday morning.

“As a result of the outage, some customers have been unable to make or receive calls, use SMS, mobile data or reach our Contact Centre for assistance,” said Mr Waita.

“Safaricom engineers and technicians are busy addressing the problem, with a view to restoring all affected services within the shortest possible time, we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by this outage,” he added.

To the average person this would mean average of Ksh 43,000 per minute showing the great success of the company. Profit before tax rose by 37 per cent to Sh35 billion for the full year to March 31.  That means while someone is busy tweeting on twitter or liking a pic on facebook the company is talking of thousands in revenue. What a giant.

This was Sh10 billion more than the Sh25.45 billion that it made in the 2012/2013 financial year. In addition to a rise in the Average Revenue Per User (ARPU), the firm also reported an increase in the total number of subscribers, which also contributed to the double-digit growth across revenue streams – voice, M-Pesa, text messaging and mobile and fixed data.
