Kenya continues to see the growth of internet penetration in the country. This has resulted to the growth of internet service providers across the country. This list continues to grow as more and more ISP continues to enter the Kenyan internet market.
If you are looking for the best internet Service provider today, there are more choices on the market than it used to be some years back. Safaricom, Jamii Telecommunication, Telkom and Zuku have for long held the grip of the top preferred internet service providers in the country. But did you know that there are over 20 internet service providers in the country?
You may have never heard about this and I understand why. You see some of these ISPs only serve a small region unlike Safaricom, Jamii and Telkom Kenya which have a national presence.
When looking for the best internet service provider, it is important to consider factors such as speed, reliability, price and even customer care services. You don’t want internet that will take ages to load a single page and getting their customer care services is an anthill task.
Personally, I have used both Safaricom and Jamii and I can state their services are great. Currently am subscribed to the Jamii Telecommunication home internet and I can’t complain much about their service.
