Zain Kenya lowers Internet charges by 25%

In the news today, Zain, Kenya’s second largest mobile network has lowered its internet charges by approximately 25%. The move is expected to increase the number of subscribers that Zain has to-date by making internet access significantly more affordable, country-wide. It also means that Zain is responding to the recent announcements by Orange, Safaricom and YU who have all also dropped their internet charges over the last few months.

In order to sign-up for Zain’s internet service and data modem, subscribers will now only have to pay Kes. 2,995, down from Kes. 3,999.00. In addition, subscribers to the service will now only have to make a deposit of Kes. 5,000.00, down from Kes. 10,000.00. It would appear that like all its major competitors, Zain intends to become a major player in the Kenya’s fast growing internet market – especially when the SEACOM, TEAMS and EASSY high speed undersea cables go live this and next year.

    How is that a reduction when it’s been the usual price for their post paid data package? I subscribed last year and 2995 has been the monthly charge. The only reduction i can see here is the deposit from 11000 to 5000

    Why did you remove the daily unlimitted internet? The month I’m beyond doubt that no one subscribes. Then your internet most of the time is offline. If you want majority, introduce even 39 shillings a day just like Yu and orange. They get the majority. thanks anyway. http://www.glorenet.com
