For the Kenyan Consumer, Home internet solutions have seen a rise in offerings. More and more players are getting into the space each trying to have a unique selling point.

While main players like Safaricom, Zuku, and Jamii Telcom dominate the market, small players have been eating into their market share.

This is especially true in satellite towns in Kajiado, Kiambu, and parts of Nairobi. For sure, the smaller players targeted areas that the established Internet service providers had not prioritized. Of course, their initial target was already developed areas with a demographic raring to have unlimited internet access.

In this article, we take a look at the different internet service providers (ISPs) in Kenya. Moreover, the focus is on packages offered to homes.

It is important to note that home fibre access is also determined by ISP coverage. While you might prefer a specific ISP, the company may not be covering your residential area. Hence, when choosing an ISP for your home internet, price, speeds, customer care, and coverage are all important considerations.
