Supplementary notes

The Kenyan financial year begins on July 1 and ends on the following year June 30.

The drop in domestic SMS volume in the first quarter of the 2021/22 financial year was attributed to a lack of SMS promotions and special offers, as well as a continued preference for over-the-top (OTT) services or messaging applications rather than SMS, according to the source.
