The new speeds are quite welcome from Safaricom. The 8Mbps package will become even more popular than before. Also the decision to have 20Mbps at that price is sold while the 100Mbps package is the most tantalizing of the lot.
However, Safaricom has decided to adjust the price upwards for their Gold and Diamond packages. They have each received a price increase of KES 300 and KES 500 respectively.
Safaricom offered double the speeds for Home Fiber in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was beneficial due to the fact that people were working from home and kids used the Internet for school work.
