Safaricom has today launched its 5G network in Kenya. With this move, Safaricom becomes the first Telco in Kenya to bring 5G to the masses.
Currently, there are a couple of devices already supporting the 5G network. These are:
- The new Galaxy S21 Series from Samsung
- The new iPhone 12 Series – Users will need to wait for an update from Apple.
- Nokia 8.3
- Huawei P40 Series
- Home Router, or MiFi device supporting 5G.
If you have any other 5G device and are in a 5G region, and your device supports the 5G bands offered by Safaricom, your device will be able to enjoy 5G speeds. For most, there won’t be a need for official software updates.
