The Communications Authority of Kenya (CA), hereinafter referred to as “the Authority”, is the regulatory authority for the ICT sector in Kenya. The ICT sector comprises of telecommunications, broadcasting, e-commerce and postal services. The Authority is also responsible for managing the country’s numbering and frequency spectrum resources.
Article 46 of The Constitution of Kenya, 2010, provides that consumers have the right to goods and services of reasonable quality, among other rights and applies to goods and services offered either by public entities or private persons.
The Section 23 of the Kenya Information and Communications Act, 1998, mandates the Authority to ensure, so far as is reasonably practical, the provision of telecommunication services as are reasonably necessary to satisfy public demand and to protect the interest of consumers with respect to the quality of such services, among other aspects of the services.
In view of the above stated Constitutional and legal requirements and considering the changes that have occurred in the ICT sector particularly in regard to increased public reliance on a wide range of ICT services, over the past ten years, the Authority has found it necessary to review the approach and methodology for the assessment of quality of telecommunication services and the attendant regulatory framework. The said review has mainly been due to the introduction, high level of public adoption and reliance on new services necessitating the broadening of the regulatory oversight on quality of service to cover the new services in the context of consumer protection.
Members of public, stakeholders and any interested parties are invited to review the proposed new Quality of Service Regulatory framework contained in the public consultation paper available below.
