After Airtel Kenya exhausted its 07xx phone number prefixes, the company is yet to get approval from the Communication Authority of Kenya to start using o1xxx prefixes.
This comes as a result of the increasing number of subscribers Airtel expects to get in future.
Currently, Airtel customers are using 0730-0739, 0750-0756, and 0785-0789 prefixes.
The new 01xxprefixes that the telecommunication company will use are 0100, 0101, and 0102.
From the latest CAK statistics report of the telecommunication sector, Airtel’s market share improved a great deal from 11% in the last quarter to 23.4%.
So far, the company has 11.56 million subscribers.
