The voice-over-LTE and video-over-LTE services offerings have been made available to 4G customers, via a range of compatible devices that includes smartphones from Huawei Technologies, Itel, Nokia, Samsung Electronics, and Tecno.

Safaricom said it had committed to ensure the service is available to a majority of Kenyans by “embarking on an ambitious expansion of its 4G network”, and said it aimed to double the number of 4G base stations across Kenya to more than 5,000 by the end of 2019.
