Payment for the Fibre Packages is every thirty (30) days in advance. If you do not pay on time, the Service will be suspended and only reactivated once you make your monthly payment.
Customers will be allocated internet speeds with a 1:4 contention ratio. This means that in instances of heavy traffic causing congestion on the network, applicable speeds may be reduced to up to 25% of the advertised speed for the package.
The Safaricom Home Fibre plans are subject to a Fair Usage Policy with usage limits and throttle speeds as indicated in the table above. Upon reaching the Fair Usage limit for the package, the speeds will be throttled to 1Mbps for Bronze plans and 3Mbps for Silver, Gold and Diamond plans for the remainder of the validity period of the subscription.
The fair usage limit is a consumption limit assigned for each usage cycle and not a volume resource or bundle allocation hence it will not be possible to roll over or extend the validity of the fair usage limit beyond the package validity cycle.
The Gold and Diamond packages will include Securenet service offering parental control and anti-malware protection. Bronze and Silver packages will need to purchase Securenet service separately if required as per the prevailing rates.
