Top home internet Service providers in Kenya

Over the recent past Home internet demand has risen in the country with a bigger concentration in the country's capital Nairobi and other Major towns. Home internet is now becoming a huge demand as many Kenyans turn to working and studying at home while the internet is also becoming a key source of home entertainment, something that has been accelerated by the existence of a number of online streaming services like Netflix, Showmax and YouTube to name just but a few.
If you are looking for an affordable home internet service Provider, here we have some of the best internet service providers in the country and while we admit that we might not have captured all home internet service providers in Kenya we have done our best to give you a comprehensive list as possible.
We also encourage you to first check out the  Key Factors to consider when choosing an ISP provider before settling on any one of these internet providers.
If in any case you are also having trouble with your current home internet provider bacause of their unreliable services or you feel they are way much expensive than it could also be high tome consider other alternatives.

Compared to mobile internet, home internet also known as fixed internet has a number of advantages including:

  • High speed uninterrupted internet connection. You can get any bandwidth size you want depending with your needs, with most top internet providers giving you unrivalled home speeds. Zuku can give you upto 60 Mbps while Faiba on it's part can deliver up to 125 Mbps high speed internet connection.

Below is our  top 10 list of home internet providers in Kenya. Please Note that since our focus on this post is on fixed home internet providers who can deliver unlimited internet home connection, we have dropped a number of other alternatives without monthly subscriptions and that is why you won't see the likes of Telkom home and Airtel home in the list.
