Have You Seen this Utter Garbage From Safaricom?

New Rules Effective 1st March

  1. New connection fee of Ksh3000 applied (6500 bob if you relocate without your router).
  2. You no longer have unlimited internet
  3. Bronze users who surpass 500GB per month will see their speeds reduce to 1Mbps
  4. Other subscribers will have speeds reduced to 3Mbps if they exceed 1TB of data
Basically, Safaricom FTTH has become bundles. Imagine paying 5k ($45) for 3Mbps after downloading 4 games, and you still have Netflix subscription and torrents to download :D:D. The new rules are here.

In my opinion, Platinum users deserve at least 5TB FUP, while others can make do with 3TB. One terabyte for Ksh12,000 ($110) is an insult TBH. Safaricom acts like Kenyans are dumb

First, they force people to not subscribe to 8Mbps (I'm certain 500 GB and 1Mbps after limit will never be enough for most people) and then they limit costlier options to mere 1TB.
That means effectively you cannot be a heavy Internet user outside Nairobi. It's only in Nairobi, that you can get an ISP without stupid policies.

Safaricom has done the math and they know who they are forcing out. They know who doesn't have a choice and will have to upgrade. They also know who they will be happy to see walk away.

The greatest ripoff is for those at the platinum bundle. Those have to find another ISP

Those at premium have been fucked very hard in the ass. How can you pay 12k for internet and the Fair Usage Limit is a mere 1TB only?? How now??
