Zuku, the Wananchi Group owned internet company has announced a new internet package at 500Mbs in what they say is the fastest internet in Kenya.
The internet will be available on its triple play 500Mbs package, that offer customer three services of internet, TV and phone.
According to a statement sent to newsrooms, customer will access 500Mbs, internet speed, Digital TV and have access to home telephone for Ksh.2.00 under a single package.
The company seems to try to maintain its position from Safaricom, which at the end of 2019 beating Zuku to become the leading provider of fixed internet services in Kenya. However, Zuku regained its position at first quarter of this year with increased customer base.
Zuku’s 500Mbps claim is a bold claim that unfortunately for us, we cannot ascertain by us since we do not have access to their service, and neither have we recently used their internet.
However, if what they say is true – especially since their website currently DOES NOT list the 500Mbps package – then on paper they are right about having the fastest speeds compared to their rivals. For example, Safaricom’s highest speed offering for Home Fibre, as is listed on their website, is currently only 40Mbps.
Zuku also claims to have 100Mbps and 200Mbps packages under their Triple Play package, but from their website, we cannot see these packages listed and neither can we find a breakdown of the prices. Under the page, Zuku shows areas Zuku Fibre is available, we have seen the listing of 30Mbps, 50Mbps, 100Mbps, and 250Mbps.
To celebrate this 500Mbps Triple Play Package, the company says they will be upgrading speeds of its current packages to twice their current speeds. This campaign will be dubbed “Twice the Speed X2” and will be part of their efforts to entice new customers.
Moreover, the company shared the pricing which is:
- Triple Play 10Mbps will be KES. 2,799
- Triple Play 20Mbps will be KES. 4,199 and
- Triple Play 60Mbps will be KES. 5,299
Prices for 100Mbs, 200Mbs, and 500Mbps have not been shared.
The company also said it is pledging to continue innovating and adapting its packages to the new emerging customer trends so as to fully satisfy them.
