Jamii Telecommunications has this evening Tuesday 5th December launched its Faiba 4G mobile network in Nairobi, a move expected to fuel a data price war with competition Safaricom, Telkom Kenya, Airtel and Equitel.
Faiba 4G, which is expected to kill the firm’s own home fibre internet Faiba Home will be running on a 700MHz spectrum and will offer customer free on-net calls as long as they have a valid data bundle. Customers can get free SIM cards or buy Mi-Fi at PhoneXpress.
Faiba 4G has installed over 300 base stations across the country but is targeting to have 1000 base stations in thirty six months. The firm says its 4G network coverage is live in Nairobi, Mombasa,Nakuru, Eldoret, Kisumu and Thika and all its customers can enjoy up to 72Mbps speeds.
In the meantime, the firm would do better with a working website, active customer care on phone and via its social media pages and also have a working public and media relations team otherwise its success will just be the launch.
See below some of Faiba 4G’s Data Prices:
|Bundle size||Bundle price (Kshs)||Bundle validity (days)|
|On net SMS||1/SMS|
|Off net SMS||1/SMS|
|On net calls (Voice & Video)||2/MIN|
