KDN launches low cost BOX Broadband Internet for Kenya’s SoHo Market.
Kenya Data Network (KDN) has this week launched a new low cost and unlimited broadband internet service for Kenya’s small office home office (SoHo) market to be known as Butterfly Optic Xpress or “BOX” for short. The service has been aggressively priced lower than any other comparable product in the marketplace includingÂ Zuku which until BOX had the lowest price for unlimited broadband internet in the country.
The BOX service uses fibre optic connections that KDN has already deployed in over 400 buildings thus far. However, if one does not (yet) have fibre optic connectivity, KDN can use wireless connectivity such as Wimax instead. In order to get connected to BOX, a refundable deposit of Kes. 15,000.00 is required although there are no equipment or set-up charges (the deposit is forfeited if a subscriber discontinues the service in under 2 years). KDN has also thrown in a free VOIP line on their Izzytalk offering for all BOX subscribers. The bundles for BOX and their rates are as follows:
Monthly BOX Rates
- 256Kbps: Kes.999.00
- 512Kbps:Â Kes.1,999.00
- 1Mbps:Â Kes.3,999.00
- 2Mbps:Â Kes.5,999.00
- 5Mbps:Â Kes.7,999.00
