Relief for new telcos as CA extends licensing compliance deadline:

The Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) has extended the grace period for two telco operators in the country after the duration within which they were supposed to launch their operations in the country expired.

Lycamobile and Homeland Media were expected to begin their operations on November 2015 and February 2016 respectively after they were granted mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) licences.

The industry regulator has said that it has extended the period to allow the telcos to negotiate interconnection agreements with other players in the industry.

“The Authority has also received communication from some of the host Mobile Network Operators on the ongoing negotiations with the MVNOs, and being cognizant of the intricacy such negotiations may present to the parties, [CA] is monitoring developments with a facilitative mindset,” said CA in a statement.
