There has been a raging debate over which is the cheapest Wi-Fi here in Kenya.
We sought to find out by analyzing different internet solutions offered by the main telecoms in Kenya.
The internet companies that we analyzed are;
- Faiba from JTL
We divided the internet solutions into two; fiber and data bundles.
Both are distinct services as one is measured in terms of speed while the other is measured in terms of amount of data. It wouldn’t be prudent to combine them as we would get inaccurate results.
Cheapest fiber solution in Kenya
|8 Mbps-Ksh 2,900.00||30 Mbps –Ksh 5,000.00||10 Mbps-Ksh 2,499.00|
|20 Mbps-Ksh 3,999.00||50 Mbps-Ksh 10,000.00||20 Mbps-Ksh3,999.00|
|40 Mbps-Ksh 5,999.00||75 Mbps-Ksh 15,000.00||60 Mbps-Ksh 4,999.00|
|100 Mbps-Ksh 11,999.00||125 Mbps-Ksh 20,000.00|
As shown in the above table, we analyzed the fibre solutions offered by Safaricom, JTL and Zuku to determine the cheapest among the three.
Zuku offers an internet speed of 60 Mbps at cost of Ksh 4,999.00, Safaricom has an internet speed of 40 Mbps at a cost of 5,999.00 while JTL offers an internet speed of 50 Mbps at a cost of Ksh 10,000.00.
If you do a comparison of the three fibre speeds that fall in the same range, you will find that Zuku offers a higher speed at a relatively low price compared to the others. Therefore you can conclude that Zuku offers the cheapest fibre solutions.
Cheapest daily data bundles
|500MB – Ksh 99.00||70MB –Ksh 10.00||70MB –Ksh 10.00||1GB –Ksh 50.00|
|150MB –Ksh 50.00||200MB-Ksh 20.00||200MB-Ksh 20.00|
|50MB –Ksh 20.00||600MB –Ksh 50.00||700MB-Ksh 50.00|
|15MB –Ksh 10.00||2GB – Ksh 99.00||700MB + 700MB Night-Ksh 60.00|
|7MB –Ksh 5.00||2GB-Ksh 100.00|
From the table above you can see that Faiba has a package of 1GB at a price of Ksh 50.00.
When you check the other telecoms, you’ll notice that if you were to purchase bundles worth Ksh 50.00 you would purchase data worth less than 1GB i.e. Safaricom you would get data worth 150MB, Airtel data worth 600MB while Telkom data worth 700MB.
Therefore we can deduce that when it comes to daily data bundles, Safaricom is the most expensive while Faiba is the cheapest Wi-Fi.
