Equitel, the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) under Finserve, has officially rolled out its advanced fifth-generation (5G) capabilities through a strategic collaboration with Airtel, its host mobile network operator

Following the success of the previous 4G deployment, Equitel, in partnership with Airtel, is once again transforming the virtual telecommunications landscape as the first MVNO to offer 5G services in Africa, heralding a new era of swift connectivity for its clientele.

This significant development promises swifter and more dependable connectivity, empowering businesses, communities, and individuals to actively participate in the digital economy.

Equitel has introduced its 5G service in over 370 locations nationwide, encompassing major towns such as Mombasa, Nakuru, Nairobi, Athi River, Kisumu, Kakamega, Siaya, Eldoret, and Bungoma, among others. Collaborating with the partner network, the 5G service will soon expand to densely populated areas, including residential neighborhoods, shopping centers, and central business districts.

Widely recognised as Kenya's premier mobile banking channel, Equitel offers customers unparalleled convenience, accessibility, affordability, and ease of transaction through diverse banking channels. Customers can effortlessly transfer funds from Equitel-to-Equitel lines without charge and make payments for goods and services via the One Equity Till Number at over one million merchants nationwide at no cost. Additionally, Equitel's "My Life" platform provides customers with convenient access to informative content directly from their phones. Working alongside industry experts, Finserve ensures customers have access to a variety of up-to-date content addressing their everyday needs, enhancing their overall quality of life.

Equitel's dedication to delivering an exceptional connectivity experience is further emphasised through the introduction of enticing data bundle offers for its customers. To celebrate this milestone, Equitel will provide a 100% bonus on data bundles every Wednesday and Friday.
