When mobile phones had just come into operation, it was a rich affair.The mobile phone was very expensive an d b y the operator ken-cell was charging very high call ratesof about 100 bob per minute and a sim card could go for ksh.1000 which only rich people could afford. Sometimes later safaricom came into operation which favoured the poor and the marginal area people unlike kencell which only concentrated on the rich and those in town. today safaricom has got many subscribers no matter how airtell reduce their charges safaricom had already gained roots
