Orange Kenya launches Flybox home Wi-Fi hub

Thursday 13 October 2011 | 14:27 CET | News
Orange Kenya has introduced the Flybox, which will enable customers to set up Wi-Fi connections within their homes and offices without the use of a fixed line. The Flybox is aimed at residential customers, small and home-based offices, and premium customers. Users will be able to connect up to ten computers to the internet concurrently through the Orange 21 Mbps (3G+) network. The Flybox is fitted with an Orange 3G+ SIM card and optional Ethernet cables that can be used to connect to computers that are not Wi-Fi enabled. Users with laptops and tablet computers will be able to access the internet through wireless connections. The portable plug and play product will allow both prepaid and postpaid customers to access speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps on the internet, and at the same time give them an option of connecting the device to a fixed telephone for their voice needs. Customers will also be entitled to a free Orange email address which they can use for their businesses. The address will be hosted by Orange and will come with 2 GB capacity for email storage. Flybox users will also enjoy the benefits of the Parental Control feature introduced by the Orange Kenya last week. The Flybox will be available from 13 October at all Orange shops as well as dealer outlets, in packages retailing from KES 7,599 to KES 20,599 depending on the equipment and data bundles that customers choose.
