1GB = KSh40, Jamii Telecom enters Kenya’s mobile internet market

Written by

Jamii Telecom limited is back to ruffle feathers once again in the telco industry with the new low-cost data bundles offer. This comes at a time top telecommunication companies are enjoying massive data revenue profits from consumers who now heavily rely on data for everyday operations, unlike the traditional voice services.

Data Bundle packages

Data packages have come a long way in the telco industry in terms of pricing and service provision and just when Kenyans thought they bagged the best deals on bundles, the provider of Faiba 4G mobile network has rolled out JTL 30 day data bundles at 1,000 for 25 GB to 6,000 for 210 GB. This is a far cry from what Kenyans are currently purchasing from top telcos Safaricom and Airtel.

Safaricom currently offers sh500 for 1GB and sh3,000 for 12GB whereas Airtel offers data bundles at sh500 for 1GB and sh2,000 for 4GB The lowest rates from Telkom Kenya offer 1.5GB for sh499 and 100GB for sh8,999.

Jamii Telekom’s packages will definitely cause a stir in the telco industry. This, however, is not the first time as it earlier this year launched new speeds for home and business customers without a change in pricing leaving the existing giants out to dry.

“Mobile devices, especially the mobile phone, have become the dominant channels through which consumers get information. They need to do business or organize their lives on the go and are responding to this reality with efficient and competitively priced services,” said JTL Chief executive and Chairman Joshua Chepkwony.

The company aims at bringing the mobile telecommunication on the same level of quality and cost competitiveness. With this, Jamii is also aiming to be the leading fibre internet provider.
