Safaricom 5g coverage sites

Safaricom has today announced the availability of Safaricom 5G Wi-Fi to empower its customers with superfast internet at home and at work, complementing its growing fibre network. But Just how much will you need to dish out to get and use 5G.

How much is Safaricom 5G

In order to access 5G Wi-Fi,  you will need to

  1. Be in 5G-ready zones, (you can check if you’re in one here)
  2. Purchase a 5G router from Safaricom at KES 25,000
  3. Pay a setup fee of KES 5,000
  4. You can then select from three packages on offer

The introductory 5G Wi-Fi plans include:

  1. 10Mbps with a usage limit of 300GB at KES 3,499;
  2. 40Mbps with a usage limit of 500GB at KES 5,999;
  3. 100Mbps with a usage limit of 1TB at KES 14,999.

You can also sign up for a 36-month contract for the packages and receive the router for free. Customers will be able to continue using the internet at throttled speeds upon depletion of the allocated usage limit.

Customers using supported 5G smartphones will also be able to access the 5G network and enjoy superfast 5G speeds. Supported smartphones include 5G-enabled devices from the Samsung Galaxy S and Fold series, as well as Huawei and Oppo 5G devices. Customers using iPhones and selecting 5G-capable Samsung devices will require a software update from the manufacturer to access the 5G network.

Plans are also underway to provide 5G data packages for mobile internet customers and leverage the Lipa Mdogo Mdogo device-financing solution to avail of more affordable 5G smartphones. Follow us on all our socials to get updated when the prices drop
