Safaricom Home fibre packages and Prices

Safaricom Home

 Safaricom fibre to the home(FTTH) is a product by Safaricom PLC that connects homes to reliable secure internet services.
Launched in 2017, FTTH has been growing steadily in a market space that has been largely dominated by Zuku and JTL's faiba.
The service is available in major cities and towns across the country and can be accessed from as little as Ksh.2999 per month for the bronze package.
Why choose Home Internet.
Internet to homes has several advantages over mobile network which include:
High speeds. Do any task that requires internet at amazing speeds, be it online gaming, live streaming downloads and much more.
High reliability with very minimal drops in speeds or downtime.
High quality signals making it good for video downloads and online streaming.
Can connect multiple devices or users at a go without affecting the spedd or signal quality.

Why Safaricom home fibre?
As compared to it's competitors, Safaricom stands out because of various reasons including:
  • Reliable internet connection. Safaricom is well known  for its reliable internet connections and this is even more evident with the home fibre. Many users have experienced no downtimes and for the ones that have their issues has only bewn for very short intervals.
  • Dedicated customer care. Any Safaricom home customer gets 24/7 customer support ready to respond to any issue that may arise. 
  • Reliability. Safaricom home fibre is not available all over the country, but for the few who are lucky to get connected enjoy amazing internet experience with high reliability and no buffering. Many users testify that since being connected they have never had to call customer care since they have nothing to worry about.
  • Affordable home plans. From the table below you can see that Safaricom home has the best plans in the country. Someone might argue that there are much cheaper options available, but we can all agree that with the quality that Safaricom home gives you every penny will be worth it. It also doesn't make sense giving lots of bandwidth for Ksh.10,000 per month while you can get a small bandwidth at a cheaper rate with Safaricom. After all, be it 100 Mbps or 1 Mpbs, all will be billed on a monthly basis.

Which plan is best for you?
Choosing the right plan means you have to strike a balance between your internet needs and the monthly bill.
But there are a few factors to consider which include:
The kind of activities you want to use the bandwidth for. For example, if you are an average internet user, then the bronze plan is good enough, since with 5Mbps you can access all your social network sites, e-mail, do online gaming, stream with standard definition and download music and videos. If you intent to do large file transfers and downloads or HD live streaming, then you will definitely require a higher plan.
The number of devices or users that will connect at a given time. Think of bandwidth as a water pipe, and the higher the bandwidth the more water it comes out of the pipe per second. This means the devices will be the containers to be filled with water. The more the containers, the higher the rate of water flow you will require to fill the tanks.

What is the major difference between fibre and fibre plus Safaricom home plans.
The world is moving quite fast technology wise, and cable internet is deemed as the future internet solution. That is why faiba call themselves 'future proof' since it is believed that fibre will provide internet requirements for future technologies, which will require speeds even up to the speed of light.
Remember with the current speeds we have, it would take you hours to download a 1 GB file.
With this fast technology advancement, people are choosing bundled services that having to deal with single purchases or subscriptions. For example it would be nice to get TV subscription, mobile data, office or home internet and call minutes under one purchase than having to go for each one independently.
That is why now many telcos providers have all in one month subscriptions, and Safaricom decided to include theirs on the home fibre.
For a single purchase you get bandwidth to use on your home, data up to 4 GB to use on your mobile when not at home, all net call minutes up to 200 per month and unlimited SMS to any network.

Airtel Zawadi points-Everything you need to Know.

Zawadi is a Swahili term for a gift or to reward. Airtel Zawadi therefore is a loyalty program by Airtel Kenya aimed at rewarding its customers for staying loyal to the brand by using their various products and services .  The service closely resembles Safaricom bonga and Telkom Ziada , both also rewarding customers for using their lines to make calls, browse or send SMS as well as transacting on mpesa. How to register for Airtel Zawadi . Initially Airtel was giving it's subscribers an opportunity to register for Airtel Zawadi by dialing *326# and selecting the option for ' registration'.  Then later couldn't see the option to register and when we contacted Airtel they told us new customers we're automatically enrolled to the program on successful registration of their lines so that they could begin earning from their first top up.  However it seems Airtel are not enrolling their Subscribers for the program anymore, and when I tried to check my points balance
