Safaricom Mobile Number Prefixes

Safaricom is the largest mobile network in Kenya with a subscriber base of nearly 30 million. With such record numbers their prefix turnover has been similarly high over the years to keep up with this growth.

While their dominance remains unrivalled, Safaricom’s market share is not growing exponentially as it used to and this is courtesy of its two main competitors, Airtel and Telkom Kenya that tend to be comparatively more affordable.

Despite this, Safaricom continues to register some growth in subscriber count and this evident through their new mobile prefixes.

Let’s take a look at all Safaricom prefixes, from old to new ones.
