Safaricom has increased its 5G coverage to select towns across 35 counties as it continues to empower its customers in 5G areas to enjoy superfast internet on the move, and for their homes and businesses.

As part of the move to spur 5G uptake, the service provider has also slashed the price of 5G Wi-Fi routers, with cash customers set to enjoy a 60% price reduction on the router.

” By increasing 5G coverage, we are enhancing Kenya’s best internet network and empowering our customers to start exploring the possibilities of 5G,” said Peter Ndegwa, CEO, Safaricom PLC.

In October 2022, Safaricom became the first service provider in Kenya to launch 5G. Since then, coverage has grown to select towns across 35 counties. New counties where 5G is now present in select towns include Bomet, Busia, Isiolo, Kitui, Mandera, Migori, Tharaka-Nithi, Trans Nzoia, Homa Bay, West Pokot, Embu, Kirinyaga, Muranga and Turkana. They join other counties where Safaricom 5G is present, including Nairobi, Kiambu, Mombasa, Kisumu, Uasin Gishu, Nakuru, Garissa, Kajiado, Kisii, Machakos, Kakamega, Kilifi, Siaya, Kericho, Kwale, Laikipia, Marsabit, Meru, Narok, Nyeri and Vihiga.
