Airtel Kenya is the second largest mobile network in Kenya in terms of its subscriber base. It trails behind the market leader Safaricom but edges out Telkom and the latest entrant, Faiba 4G by Jamii Telecom.
Despite Safaricom enjoying what many may consider a monopoly, Airtel has stood ground over the years despite registering no profits. As testament to this fact, they’ve been launching new products and services all the while giving a fresh coat of paint on others.
As it’s to be expected, such changes bring with them new things top of which are USSD codes: the preferred medium through which networks allow subscribers to access their products and services.
Today we’ll be looking at a comprehensive list of these Airtel Kenya Short codes.
