Many internet service providers in the market today tout their products to offer ‘real’ broadband speeds regardless of the fact that they all rely on the satellite backbone for connectivity. . . And true to my suspicions . . . The bandwith is almost always shared . . .Which means u dont get what u paid for . . Its like getting piped water straight to your house compared to getting access to a watering hole. . . Just like everybody else. . . In this respect most of the isp’s mislead their consumers. . . . In my experience the fastest link ave experienced is on Safaricom 3G . . . . Where I have achieved a 2.2 mbps download speed. . . . I guess we will just have to wait for the fiber optic cables to land in mombasa. . . .
