Orange Kenya launches “Broadband Nyumbani”.
According to the newspapers, Orange Kenya has launched yet another internet offer for the home market. The service is aptly named “Broadband Nyumbani” (nyumbani means “home” in Kiswahili). The service runs on ADSL which means it uses landlines to connect you to the internet.
This service was offered by Telkom Kenya before France Telecom made its investment last year – it had customers who either complained about it or loved it, depending on where they we’re located, and the time of day. I’m guessing that Orange Kenya has fixed the bugs in re-launching the ADSL service.
Broadband Nyumbani requires a live box which is the device that connects you to the phone line for the ADSL connectivity to work. The live box costs Kes. 3,990.00 across all the various monthly packages as below:
- Home ADSL 256K: Kes. 2,999.00
- Home ADSL 512K: Kes. 4,999.00
- Home ADSL 1MB: Kes. 6,999.00
