Stakeholder Engagement II Report: Engagement with the Public
Institutions, Policy and Spectrum Lobby groups in Kenya

Work Supported By

The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA)

This was the second workshop on engaging relevant stakeholders on the state and potential of spectrum sharing in Kenya. While the preceding workshop held on 21st January 2022 was with Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), this second workshop engaged public (government) institutions, the regulator (Communications Authority of Kenya – CA), ICT policy advocacy groups such as KICTANet and the general public made up of researchers as well as students. Notably, some WISPs, both local and from around Africa were also able to join the workshop. The workshop’s main focus was to present our findings on Gap Analysis on Spectrum Sharing (SS) in Kenya and also share studies and experiences of the opportunity of spectrum sharing across the world, particularly through TV White Spaces(TVWS) and the latest developments on the Wi-Fi 6/6E.
The Workshop

The workshop was attended by 35 participants1 and featured various presentations as well as a question and
answer (Q&A) session at the end which obtained active participation from the participants with the
presenters sharing their perspectives as well as providing clarifications on the presentations. Largely, the
questions from the stakeholders were based on the need to properly understand the present state of TVWS
in Kenya and any initiatives of deployment as well as the value and initiatives on the 6 GHz Wi-Fi.
The list of the presentations and the presenters is included here………..
