Liquid Telecom sacks resellers for illegal connections

Thursday 1 June 2017 | 10:25 CET | News
Liquid Telecom Kenya stemmed annual revenue losses of up to USD 900,000 by chasing corrupt resellers that were facilitating illegal connections, Business Daily reported. Liquid Telecom said it had been auditing its networks and contracts to identify illegal and ghost internet connections that spawned massive revenue losses. The South African company said the illegal connections were among the corrupt and unethical practices that it inherited when it acquired the Kenyan business from Kenya Data Networks (KDN) in 2013.
