Safaricom launched their home internet services, known as Safaricom Home Fibre, twice. The first time it flopped.
But many complaints from Kenyans have confirmed that the whole thing has been a scam, as Kenyans struggle to get internet.
Safaricom home fibre packages are categorized based on speed and prices.
The telco’s half-year report also show it laid out more than 5,500 kilometres of fibre optic cable, an additional 500 kilometres when compared to the previous first-half of the year.
This also saw it increase its fibre coverage by 400 to pass by 2,000 businesses. The latest statistics indicate that Safaricom has so far connected 171,000 homes with fibre internet.
Here are some complaints from social media users confirming that the company is only focussed in growing the numbers and not offering Kenyans what they promise
The only thing about Safaricom Internet is the Home Fibre… Anything else is slavery…the more you use the more expensive the daily, ever-changing bundle offers become #AllInOneBundle

Safaricom Home Fibre: This is what impunity looks like
They started off so well and the home internet looked very promising. The speeds were exactly as advertised.
Today, Safaricom home internet speed is the worst. One can never get better than 1Mbps.

@sylmulinge @bobcollymore Hi Bob, I am so saddened and frustrated about Safaricom home Fibre. I was connected and then disconnected after moving to the next house in the same estate.
Dan has been making promises for a year now with no progress.
Now over 80 people have moved
