TOP INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS IN KENYA
Kenya’s Mobile internet is dominated by three giants, Safaricom, Airtel and Telkom. Safaricom has dominated courtesy of its widespread reach and support from the government which is a majority owner. On the other side, Airtel and Telkom have continuously offered competitive prices to customers within their reach.
When figuring out what type of internet you need and which provider is right for you, these are the essential questions you should ask yourself.
Jamii Comm has recently launched Faiba 4G Extreme Bundles which have wowed all Kenyans for their unbeatable prices. Many have made a move to join the network and more others are hoping the rest of the companies will offer better internet as a countermeasure.
1. What speed and reliability do you need?
2. Does the service come with bundled resources?
3. Are security issues addressed by the ISP?
4. What level of customer support comes with the service?
