TEAMS has the first submarine cable landing operator licence in Kenya

TEAMS has been given the first submarine cable landing operator licence in Kenya. The firm paid an initial fee of Sh15 million, besides making an up front annual operating payment of five million shillings for the current financial year. At the same time, the CCK approved the award of second licence to Sea Submarine Communications (SEACOM), but the firm will only get the green light to connect with local Internet providers upon paying the license fee of Sh15 million.
