  1. Why can’t phone ISPs provide unlimited internet. Imagine the opportunities they would provide by doing so. I personally get internet to my home from a small ISP using radio equipment. 3mbps @ ksh. 4k per month. The things I have achieved, I would never if I depended on Safaricom, Airtel, or Orange.

    • In my opinion, the best way to use Showmax when you don’t have home internet is download the shows on WiFi and watch offline, you’ll still get the same experience and it will be video on demand, only thing you will need is a microSD card for the downloads.

      From the showmax website:

      “Download up to 25 shows over Wi-Fi and keep them for up to 30 days using the Android or iOS apps on smartphones and tablets. Once you start watching a show or movie offline, you’ll have 48 hours to finish watching it.”
