Home Internet is really picking up in Urban centres across the country with players like Jamii Telecom’s Faiba and Wananchi Group’s Zuku Fiber being the biggest players in Nairobi. However, Safaricom’s offer, Safaricom Home is also really expanding and today, new customers have a reason to hop onto the Telecom giant’s service.
Safaricom has today announced that new customers will enjoy two months subscription at half the retail price. This is in a move to grow the uptake of its Home fibre service. This is also expected to see the company roll out the service to more homes across the country.
“Safaricom Home Fibre is a proposition that we began offering just over two years ago and this has been a new experience for most of our customers. As a result, we have designed the 50 percent discount to appeal to those who would like to experiment and try out the service. We continue to record remarkable growth driven by demand for unlimited entertainment, working at home, home CCTV among other emerging customer needs,” said Michael Joseph, CEO, Safaricom.
New customers will automatically qualify for the offer once they dial *400# and choose “Get Safaricom Home Fibre”. The Bronze package will entitle customers to a one month half-price offer while new customers on the Silver, Gold, and Diamond packages will enjoy two months at the 50 percent off pricing.
The company is also looking to extend its fibre coverage to more than 15,000 additional homes across the country over the next two months. Some of the areas to be covered include parts of Kisumu and Thika, Kizingo in Mombasa, and Kinoo, Komarock and Ruaka in Nairobi.
The service currently reaches more than 300,000 homes across the country, with more than 107,000 customers connected across Nairobi, Mombasa, Eldoret, Kisumu, Nakuru, Nyeri and Thika.
