I need help in finding well priced broad band internet in a place 17 km from Nakuru - not covered by the usual Zuku/Faiba/Safaricom.

I use Safaricom dongles or tethering my phone but this is expensive and not suitable for streaming TV or heavy downloads/Conferencing...

Other than Liquid Telcom, what are the other options?

Admin can move to the correct section (but not the too invisible sections where one rarely gets responses).

TIA

I am interested as well. Not as a customer but someone who works for an a small ISP. I am based in Kisumu. If you were in Kisumu we would have connected you.

My Boss is planning to expand out of Kisumu and I am interested to know how things are in other cities as we plan the next city to supply.

Airtel daily bundle 2GB for 99bob on 4G tethered from your phone to laptop is your best bet buddy. From my phone I can use the laptop anywhere in the house upstairs, downstairs and even in the gazebo. Safcon's daily bundle is a big joke. They lie and it is gone in hours!

Could someone explain how the google loon internet works. Are they an ISP or they just convert the remote areas to 4G coverage and one can access this 4G from their network eg Scom, Airtel hence higher speeds in these remote areas?

From my understanding Google loon is not an ISP. The baloons create an aerial wireless network. You are right they create 4G coverage in a remote area where there is no infrastructure.

The signal travels from baloon to baloon in the network then to a ground base station which is connected to the ISP in this case Telkom, Airtel, SCOM etc.

To access the internet you just need a 4G enabled device to tap in to the loon wireless network.

So in short the telcom companies are the ISPs that connect to the global network while the network of baloons fitted with antennas provides the wireless 4G coverage.

Google loon allows telecom companies to expand their coverage without having to spend a lot of money in building cell towers or laying optical cables to bring internet to remote areas.

This is Good news especially around this time when everyone is fleeing the cities.

With Google Loon, having hi-speed internet in your farm is now possible. Your telco provider will find it cheaper since they don't have to spend money on acquiring land to construct, operate and maintain expensive cell towers. They also don't need to apply for way-leave to install optical fiber cables or be worried about fiber cable being cut.

Lets hope this model proves profitable for both Google and Telkom otherwise they may pull the plug

Most telcos offer LTE solutions if the area you are is is covered with 4G network
Safcom i think has packages for 3/4k per month, Telkom also charges about the same.
The LTE solutions are better than having to buy bundles as they are unlimited

Got a quotation from Liquid Telecom Wimax for 9800 installation then 3000 monthly. Problem is am not sure of reliability since noone around me has installed this.

Then am seeing the difference between the Safcom one and Liquid is not so different.

I am in this business, a small wireless ISP. I am curios if truly there are no little players in Nakuru. I am currently in Nairobi outskirts, Kismumu and mombasa.

If there are truly no players in Nakuru, I would be shocked and I can come and sign you up as my customer.
Can you please contact us from our website (https://kalanet.co.ke ) and I will see if We can set you up.

I looked up Elemnentaita, coverage is there at the edge of it. I am not sure how to share a picture of our coverage here. I would show you. But I see few settlements around that area, maybe the reason why not alot of players are there.
