While Starlink’s expansion to Kenya presents a good opportunity, particularly for Kenyans residing in remote areas, its high hardware cost may hinder widespread adoption. Starlink has the potential to become a serious competitor to Zuku, Jamii Telekom’s Faiba, and Safaricom’s home fibre out of Nairobi once hardware costs decrease to more affordable levels, possibly around Ksh. 10,000.
