Faiba Kenya Packages Speed and Prices
Jamii Telecom’s Faiba is perhaps widely known for its hilarious animation advertisements. However, Faiba has great coverage since it has expanded its services to 20 counties in Kenya. Further expansion plans are underway.
Faiba internet offers two categories of internet services: Faiba Home and Faiba Business. Also, the giant telecommunications company offers Faiba Konnect. Under each of the three categories, there are various packages that come with different bandwidths and prices.
Faiba Home packages, Speed and Prices
The table below summarizes Faiba Home packages:
|Package||Speed (Mbps)||Charge (Monthly)|
|Faiba 5Mbps||5Mbps||Ksh. 5,000|
|Faiba 10Mbps||10Mbps||Ksh. 10,000|
|Faiba 15Mbps||15Mbps||Ksh. 15,000|
|Faiba 20Mbps||15Mbps||Ksh. 20,000|
Each of these packages attracts an installation cost of Ksh. 15,000. This price is definitely on the higher side when compared to Zuku charges. The monthly charges are also a bit high; hence, it is prudent to assume the main target is the high-end market.
Faiba Business Packages, speed and Prices
Faiba business allows your businesses to enjoy fast internet speeds. The table below summarizes Faiba Business packages available:
|Package||Speed (Mbps)||Users||Charges (Monthly)|
|Faiba Business 3||3Mbps||1-10||Ksh. 10,000|
|Faiba Business 6||6Mbps||11-20||Ksh. 15,000|
|Faiba Business 9||9Mbps||21-20||Ksh. 25,000|
|Faiba Business 12||12Mbps||31-40||Ksh. 30,000|
|Faiba Business 15||15Mbps||41-50||Ksh. 40,000|
|Faiba Business 20||20Mbps||51-65||Ksh. 55,000|
The installation fee is Ksh. 15,000 for Faiba ready locations. In other locations, the price will be determined by the technical team after a survey is conducted. The monthly charges are a bit high, especially when compared to those of other internet service providers in the industry.
Faiba Konnect is another internet service from Jamii Telecommunications and it offers a connection between two points. The Point to Point (P2P) connection can allow connection of two remote sites. For instance, Faiba Konnect can make a connection between a company’s headquarters and its various branches.
Faiba Konnect Packages, speed and Prices
The table below presents a summary of Faiba Konnect packages, speed and prices:
|Faiba Konnect 1||1Mbps||Ksh. 9,000|
|Faiba Konnect 2||2Mbps||Ksh. 15,000|
|Faiba Konnect 3||3Mbps||Ksh. 20,000|
|Faiba Konnect 5||5Mbps||Ksh. 30,000|
|Faiba Konnect 10||10Mbps||Ksh. 57,000|
|Faiba Konnect 20||20Mbps||Ksh. 90,000|
|Faiba Konnect 50||50Mbps||Ksh. 150,000|
Faiba faces stiff competition from other internet service providers such as access Kenya, Safaricom, and Airtel. Zuku is cheaper to install and maintain in terms of monthly charges when compared to Faiba whose installation and monthly charges are a bit higher. The major difference is that Zuku targets the common man while Faiba seems to target the high-end market.
Recently, Safaricom introduced 4G internet services and this product is likely to attract new trends in the market.
The consumption of the internet has been increasing over the past decade and this trend is likely to continue into the future. It will be interesting to see how Jamii Telecommunications and other service providers in the industry will evolve so as to meet changing consumer needs. It is inevitable that the internet will become more affordable and accessible to more counties in 2017 and beyond.
