In a bold move to revolutionize internet access in Kenya, Airtel Kenya officially launched its 5G network with it’s 5G Wi-Fi plans on July 6, 2023, joining the ranks of Safaricom, which introduced its own 5G service eight months earlier.

Airtel’s 5G network, now available in 28 towns across 21 counties, boasts 370 active 5G sites in 180 wards, making it a formidable competitor in the race to provide high-speed connectivity.

Revolutionizing Home and Enterprise Connectivity: Airtel Kenya’s Affordable and Accessible 5G Broadband Plans

To capitalize on this new technology, Airtel Kenya offers two primary categories of 5G plans: Home Broadband and enterprise broadband.

The Home Broadband bundles cater to individual users, with the 5G Ultra bundle providing 300GB of data for 30 days at KES 2,999, or 600GB for KES 5,000.

Businesses, on the other hand, can opt for the Enterprise Broadband bundles, which offer unlimited data with varying speeds and fair usage policies.

The Airtel 5G network is not only more affordable in Kenya than Safaricom’s but also more accessible, with a 5G router priced at KES 10,000, compared to KES 25,000 for Safaricom’s router.

Airtel Kenya has also introduced an incentive of 50% bonus data for the first six months when purchasing their 5G home broadband data.
