Airtel Kenya has announced the introduction of new Unlimited Home Broadband 5G Data Plans, which promise uninterrupted data service and dependable performance on their 5G network 

These plans are designed to cater to the varied requirements of both residential and commercial users, offering a smooth and transformative digital connectivity experience.

Airtel Kenya’s 5G plans?

Since the launch of its 5G network in the middle of the previous year, Airtel began with 372 sites across 16 counties and 180 wards. The company has now nearly doubled its 5G presence, with over 690 sites spanning 39 counties and 285 wards. To celebrate this expansion and the significant adoption of 5G services, Airtel has introduced these unlimited broadband plans specifically for home users who desire the superior 5G experience.

“We are pleased to introduce Airtel Kenya’s Unlimited Plans,” announced Ashish Malhotra, managing director of Airtel Kenya. “They signify our commitment to providing unmatched connectivity solutions and embody our vision for individuals and businesses empowered by seamless connectivity.”

Airtel’s network currently reaches 89% of Kenya’s population, and the company is dedicated to further expanding its infrastructure to cover 94% by the end of 2024, aiming to bring reliable connectivity to more people.

“At Airtel, we are steadfast in our dedication to supporting digital inclusion, and we are encouraged by the market’s response to our offerings. We are confident that our ongoing network expansion will enable us to extend connectivity to more communities nationwide, ensuring that no one is left behind in the digital revolution,” added Malhotra.

The Unlimited plans come in three different speeds: 10 Mbps for Kes 3,500 per month, 20 Mbps for Kes 5,000 per month, and 30 Mbps for Kes 6,500 per month. These plans require an Airtel 5G router, which is available at all Airtel stores for Kes 2,999.

An added feature of the Unlimited 5G Plans is a unique power backup included with the Airtel 5G router, which guarantees continuous service for up to 5 hours during power cuts, a first in the market.

Customers can acquire the 5G routers at any Airtel location nationwide.

Airtel is undertaking a significant network expansion initiative, planning to deploy close to 1000 new sites by year’s end. This expansion, the largest in Airtel Kenya’s history, aims to enhance indoor coverage in urban areas and extend services to rural regions, with a particular focus on improving network reach in the northeastern part of the country.
