Of Monopolies and Conspiracies

Just like the average kenyan . . or human being for that matter. .. .I don’t like being taken for a long bumpy ride. . .problem is our corporations have no idea how to make money if they dont resort to thuggish behavior. . . .this has led me to scrutinize all gift horses from such companies in the mouth and all other possible crevasses. . . . . .A while back I couldn’t fathom why Telkom kenya would pull their unlimited broadband wireless service just when everyone was getting excited bout it. . . .much as they would like us to believe it is because of quality of service management it is not. . . . Its because the goverment , through Telkom Kenya owns a huge stake in Safaricom. this thus puts them in a difficult position when it comes to some products eg unlimited mobile broadband which would have seriously eroded Safaricom’s 3g campaign. . . . .EVDO broadband would have provided broadband minus the obscene profits thus they had to retract and return to Mb based billing and selling the modem @ 3,990 just like the Safaricom broadband modem. . . . .

Well, the fact that our Government owns a huge stake in both firms means it is unlikely anyone will bring the costs down seeing as the regulator is neck deep in the mess. . . . .

atleast we aint as badly off as the Americas. . . .there they pay to recieve sms’s!!. . . .wud u believe it??
