Safaricom customers will be glad to know that the Telco giant has reduced the prices of their 4G Wi-Fi routers of the Adrian and Huawei series by up to 40 per cent.
Safaricom made a public announcement stating that the Huawei router will now be priced at Ksh 6,999, down from its original price of Ksh 10,999.
Similarly, the Adrian router will now be sold at Ksh 5,999, down from its previous price of Ksh 9,999.
This, the Telco says, is meant to increase the adoption of their home internet product.
“This end month, jibambe na 4G Wi-Fi! Enjoy a 40% price drop on Safaricom 4G Wi-Fi routers and indulge in the online experiences you love,” Safaricom said on its Facebook page.
Where to purchase the routers
According to Safaricom, the routers can be purchased directly from the MySafaricom app, Safaricom shops, or dealers, as well as through a USSD code.
The routers come with 30 GB of free data valid for a period of 30 days.
The telco last year launched their 5G Wi-Fi network across several counties and provides fixed 5G WIFI to homes and businesses, similar to what they offer with 4G for Homes and Businesses.
To hope onto Safaricom’s 5G network, customers need to purchase their 5G enabled routers for around Ksh 25,000. These routers access Safaricom’s 5G networks and redistribute it to your devices as Wi-Fi.
Safaricom also recently launched 5G ready mobile data packages aimed at mobile internet customers.
Users that want to use these data packages will have to have to meet the following requirements.
- Have a smartphone that supports 5G.
- Be located in an area that is covered by Safaricom’s 5G network.
The company is also looking to leverage the Lipa Mdogo Mdogo device-financing solution to make more affordable 5G smartphones available to customers.
