Internet performance details are here with us, having been put together by Ookla, a web service that provides free analysis of internet access metrics.
The assessment is for the first quarter of 2022, which ended in March.
Right off the bat, Faiba emerged as the top fixed broadband provider in Q1 with a media download speed of 24.64 Mbps.

Determining median latency/ping for top fixed broadband providers in Kenya during Q1 2022, Faiba had the lowest latency at 8 ms.
To note, ping is the reaction time of your connection, or how quickly your device gets a response after you’ve sent out a request. Fast ping or low latency means a more responsive connection, especially in applications where timing is everything (like video games). Latency is measured in milliseconds (ms).
Here is how the rest of the providers faired:
