Orange Kenya has launched a low-cost wireless internet solution at Nairobi’s Kenyatta University, promising reliability and convenience of high-speed internet.
To use the service students are required to turn on the Wi-Fi functionality on their devices and purchase internet bundles using Orange Mobile top-up cards.
“Apart from being the most affordable internet bundle in the market, we are ensuring that the students’ cost of entry is kept low since there is no need to purchase alternate devices,” said Orange Kenya chief executive officer (CEO) Mickael Ghossein.
The minimum bundle offering on the volume-based billing will be 20MB at a cost of KSh20, and the maximum a 500MB bundle at KSh500.
Additionally, users will get a 100 per cent data bonus upon the purchase of any data bundle over a three-month period ending May 2014, while every new user logging in for the first time will enjoy free browsing for the first ten minutes.
This marks the second internet-related project Orange has engaged in with Kenyatta University, the first being the powering of the universities new library with free internet connectivity in 2011.
