Safaricom continues to lead the telecommunications space in Kenya and today, the company is pushing the envelope even further with the launch of its 5G data bundle packages. The move comes after Safaricom’s successful testing of the 5G network in Nairobi and a few other cities around the nation over the past few years.

With the launch of the 5G data bundle packages, Safaricom aims to provide its customers with faster internet speeds and improved connectivity. The new data bundles will allow users to access the 5G network and enjoy faster download and upload speeds, low latency, and high-quality streaming.

The 5G data bundle packages will be available in various sizes, ranging from 15GB to 200GB, to cater to different customer needs. The prices of the bundles will vary depending on the size, with the smallest bundle starting at Ksh 1,000 and the largest at Ksh 10,000.

To access the 5G network, Safaricom customers will need to have a 5G-enabled device and a supported SIM card. The company earlier clarified that users with 4G SIM cards are good to go as these SIMs already support 5G.

How to Purchase Safaricom 5G Mobile Bundles

These are pretty generous allocations and based on the Safaricom 5G speeds we have performed and seen from other Safaricom subscribers, chances are that there might not be any leftovers at the end of the 30-day validity period of these bundles.

While we’re talking about these leftovers, Safaricom says that unused allocations will not roll over into the new month so, ensure you don’t purchase more than you’re ready to use.


The launch of Safaricom’s 5G data bundle packages is a significant milestone for the company and the telecommunications industry in Kenya. It marks a new era of faster internet speeds and improved connectivity, which will benefit consumers, businesses, and the country as a whole.

Safaricom’s 5G data bundle packages are an excellent opportunity for customers to experience the benefits of the 5G network. With faster internet speeds and improved connectivity, users can enjoy seamless browsing, streaming, and downloads. The launch of the 5G network is a significant step towards a more connected future for Kenya. This should also be a wake-up call to the other telcos to hasten their pace and deploy 5G to their customers.
