Safaricom kicks off fibre to home regional roll out plan

Safaricom has kicked off its Fiber to Home Regional Roll out Plan that will see an increased number of customers accessing fast internet speeds from the comfort of their homes.

Safaricom says it currently has 95,000 homes connected to its fiber infrastructure.

Customers will have a choice of different Fibre to Home internet packages — starting from as low as Kshs2,500 per month with speeds of 5Mbps to Kshs9,999 at 40Mbps per month.

The first phase of the Safaricom Fibre to Home will start with Kitengela town and its environs, targeting 14,000 homes with a plan to reach 40% penetration within the next three months.

Other towns that are targeted in this phase include Athi River, Buruburu, Ngong Road, Runda, Ruaka and Karen.

Once customers register for the service, they will be given a router and access to credentials that will enable them to have both Wireless and LAN access, with no installation charges.
