Jamii Telecom (JTL), also known as Faiba 4G, has been a game-changer in the Kenyan internet market since its launch in December 2017. Faiba 4G offers budget-friendly and accessible internet packages, available through MiFi devices or any 4G/LTE-enabled smartphones. Faiba bundles are cheaper compared to other networks in Kenya.

For as little as 20 shillings, you can now enjoy 225 MB data bundles on the Faiba 4G network, valid for 24 hours. If you have data-intensive tasks, there’s an enticing option of a 1 GB package priced at only 50 shillings, also with a validity of one day.

You can also opt for higher Faiba 4G packages with longer validity. These range from 2.5 GB valid for 3 days to a whopping 225 GB package going for 90 days.
