Safaricom yesterday announced new Home Fibre packages that will combine mobile voice, mobile data, SMS and Home Fibre in one package.  Known as Home Fibre Plus, the new package gives Safaricom Home Fibre customers data connectivity, calls and SMS wherever at a single fee.

To enjoy the Home Fibre Plus packages, Safaricom Home Fibre customers can dial *400# , select “Manage Your Subscription” and then select “Home Fibre Plus” option and pick their preferred package.

Equally, Home Fibre customers can pick their preferred home insurance plans by dialling *400# and select the “Home Insurance” option under “Manage your subscriptions”.

“The Home Fibre offering has also been instrumental in providing peace-of-mind to our customers when it comes to home security. Our partnership with Jubilee to offer a simplified and affordable home insurance package is a further boost in meeting this need,” said Sylvia Mulinge, Chief Customer Officer, Safaricom.

Safaricom’s Home Fibre service has passed more than 213,000 homes across the country and is available in Nairobi, Nakuru, Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, Thika, Bungoma, Kitale, Nyeri and Nanyuki among other towns.

In Nairobi, the service is available in Nyayo Estate, Imara Daima, South B, Langata Estate, Ongata Rongai, Kiambu Road, Ruaka, Runda, Parklands, Westlands, Kileleshwa, Mountain View, Kinoo and Kikuyu among other estates.

 The firm also partnered with Jubilee Insurance to provide Home Fibre customers with a preferential home insurance cover. Unlike typical home insurance policies, customers will not be required to compile an inventory of their household goods to benefit from the policy.

“Through constant innovation, one of our primary goals at Jubilee Insurance is to ensure we provide relevant solutions to our clients’ needs in the easiest way possible. This partnership with Safaricom is just the beginning and we will continue to disrupt the industry so as to reach more people with our insurance solutions so they can live free,” said Winnie Njau, General Manager – General Insurance Business, Jubilee Insurance.
