Orange Kenya launches per minute wireless Internet.
In what is fast becoming a glut of Home and/or SME internet access solutions in Kenya, Orange Kenya has launched a low cost CDMA-based service. The service requires the purchase of a Kes. 3,500.00 USB modem and charges only Kes. 1.00 per minute between the hours of 7.00 pm to 7.00 am and Kes. 2.00 from 7.00 am to 7 pm.
The new service can also be accessed via an Orange Fixed Plus prepaid connection handset if you have one already or opt to purchase one instead of the modem.Â This dial-up service should NOT be confused with Orange Broadband which offers significantly faster speeds and charges for unlimited monthly access based on different bandwidth packages (the least expensive starting at a hefty Kes. 6,000.00 per month for the Plus service).
The full package for the new Orange Kenya Wireless Internet Service comes with the following:
- 1 USB modem (Windows 2000 and XP compatible)
- Free data enabled RUIM card
- Free Orange Fixed Plus entry pack with Kes. 50 bonus airtime on activation
- No connection fee
- Coverage with Orange Fixed Plus
The package can be acquired from all Orange Customer Experience Centres and Orange Dealer shops. More information can be obtained by calling 100 from any phone connected to the Orange Kenya or Telkom Kenya networks or 020 222 1000 from other telecom networks operating in Kenya.
