What a wonderful new service from Safaricom. If you have been hesitating getting your rural internet cafe set up, then you have no more excuses. Safaricom has launched a flat-fee (up to a point) internet connection product that is very affordable.
The service branded as Bambanet costs KShs. 1,999 (USD 30) per month and needs you to buy a USB modem for KShs. 5,999 (USD 90). For this you get to download 700 MB per month and for anything over that it will cost you K.Shs. 10 (USD 0.16) per MB.
I can positively confirm that this offer is by far the best internet product in Kenya at the moment:
1. It's relatively very cheap.
2. It's easy and cheap to setup
3. It's available almost everywhere in Kenya.
Way to go Safaricom, let's see if your competition down on Mombasa Road takes up the cue.
