ISPs DISCUSS REVENUE SHARING MODEL WITH KENYA TELKOM

Internet

Kenyan ISPs seem to be in the process of persuading Kenya Telkom not to set up its own "free" ISP service, 994 but to collaborate on a revenue sharing model. Currently dial-up subscriptions are worth KS75 million annually and ISPs pay Kenya Telkom KS71 million in phone bills and KS30 million for international connectivity to Jambonet. Kenya Telkom opened the bidding by saying they should share revenues 20/80% in their favour. The ISPs are drafting their position and this should have been agreed by the time you read this.
