Unlike Zuku who went ahead to slightly bump up speeds for some of its packages but at the same time increasing their prices, Jamii Telecom which has more than 110,000 home and business connected to its network, has made a huge move by increasing the speeds of their home and business offerings by six times while maintaining the prices of the said packages.

In a notice sent out to is customers, JTL said that the increase in speeds is meant to “improve customer experience and affirm Jamii’s position as a leader in the fibre internet market.” The new speeds will mean that customers can now enjoy more content online at higher quality without the worry of buffering or slow downloads.

The lowest home internet offering which costs Ksh.5000 will now offer subscribers speeds of up to 30Mbps up from 5Mbps while its highest Ksh.20,000 will offer speeds of up to 125Mbps up from 20Mbps. Business premises are also not left behind and they also see a significant bump in speeds such as 15Mbps for Ksh.10,000 up from 3Mbps.

Below are the new speeds for Faiba Home internet:

“We are overhauling our packages because we feel that Kenya is ripe for high-speed internet. We are increasing the speeds and maintaining the prices as a way of passing the benefits of our upgraded infrastructure capacity to consumers,” said Joshua Chepkwony, JTL chairman.

This increase in speeds come in the wake of Safaricom announcing that it has connected over 81,000 homes to its Fibre to the home network. As competition gets intense in the internet offering space, customers across the board will get to enjoy better services at even lower prices.
