The internet, as predicted, has become part and parcel of everyday life.
We can see and be seen by the world at the click of button for whatever you’re trying to achieve; buying, selling, awareness, attention, name it.
While before you would have to leave your home and go to a cyber café to connect to the World Wide Web, the reality today is that you can have internet connectivity on the go.
Even better is that you can be connected at home and you don’t need to be in an office setting either or pay that huge bill that comes along with the premises. Home internet has solidified its position in the industry.
The players in the market are jostling with a “Pick me!” stance and subscribers are hard pressed to take the decision of who to go with.
Mobile operator Airtel is punching through with a Home offer that is raising eyebrows across the home interwebs, gaining traction so fast.
Stomping into the market of 350,000 strong, active subscribers paying Sh3 billion yearly, the market is still plump for the picking and there is huge potential in this still highly untapped market.
Nairobi and Mombasa will be the first leg beneficiaries of Airtel Smart Home. The service is through a GSM router and sim card where the customer enjoys 4G super speeds. The beauty will be, no waiting in line for engineers with bundles of wires and intrusion to get you hooked up; Airtel Smart home is a plug and play 4G device which is portable.
In order to enjoy the new product/service, customers need to purchase a 4G enabled router and then buying their bundle of choice. Bundle prices range from Sh2,000 for 40GB to Sh4,000 for 100GB data valid for 30 days.
Airtel has thought through the bugs that subscribes currently face, and with Airtel Smart Home, you can connect up to 32 devices in the same area. To entice customers, Airtel is offering 25GB free data for one month with the purchase of the router.
With the bundle that a subscriber chooses, one might have extra GBs at the end of the paid period; Smart Home also allows you to carry over your bundles to the next period if you renew within 7 days of expiry.
Airtel will carry through the spot of having the most affordable options for bundles and internet and as a gift to the interwebs.
Airtel understands your need and is now giving you an option to connect whenever, wherever by simply plugging and playing. Subscribers can now have affordable connectivity at home. You only need a onetime purchase of the gadget at Kshs7499, and the hero is the bundles you buy each month.
Airtel Smart Home is offering solutions to the internet queries and promising a bright future for would-be subscribers.
