Today as Airtel Services went down, their twitter feed went up in flames as Kenyans ranted about their insufficiency in quality and customer care etiquette. Different people had different emotions towards the Airtel catastrophe:
There was criticism:
Airtel Kenya you have really failed the whole country today. Does it mean you don't have competent technicians and engineers to fix emergency cases or what???

Customer care in Kenya is just at another level. Zero effort. I think it is the area least served by actual professionals. Companies probably just hire anybody who can answer a phone call, send a tweet and respond to email. Occasionally.

A need for compensation:
@AIRTEL_KE action should be taken against you by @CA_Kenya for such poor services. How does a company of your calibre allow such to happen on a working day, seriously? You're jokers. I need compensation for wasting my time and money lost during the outage. @KTNNewsKE https://t.co/kaePV5Rf5T

Seems Airtel Kenya is experiencing downtime on their 3G/4G network. Only 2G is up. To make calls, lock your phone to 2G for now.
