How Safaricom is boosting SME’s in Kenya

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Kisii are set to enjoy a high-speed internet as a result of ‘fibre for business’ that was launched by safaricom few days ago.

Kisii is the 10th town where SMEs will be able to enjoy fast, reliable and affordable connectivity after Nairobi, Nakuru, Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, Malindi, Machakos, Nanyuki and Kakamega.

This rollout is in line with the ‘ready business’ which offers SMEs with internet connectivity for their businesses.

“Fibre for Business opens doors to a number of benefits to businesses, including full use of cloud solutions. Through fibre, we are offering SMEs tools to access fast, reliable internet that will effectively enhance their business operations.” Said George Ndhiwa, the Safaricom’s Head of Western/Nyanza region

The good thing about this high speed internet is that it is delivered through fibre, which has unlimited bandwidth capabilities and offers the fastest high-speed data connectivity.

In addition to Fibre for Business, other Safaricom propositions targeted at SMEs include Easy50 and Ready Business.

The Easy50 data bundle for SMEs offers up to 50GB of data on Safaricom’s network and can be accessed by up to 10 devices, using a wireless router or smartphone as a hotspot for a flat monthly rate of Kshs 6,000.

The ‘Ready Business’ platform bundles together various technology and advisory services to empower entrepreneurs tackle challenges of a rapidly changing business landscape.
