Introduction On How To Make Money At Home

Nowadays almost everyone at home has an internet connection. Zuku Fiber and Safaricom Fiber are the top in the market and they make it very easy to connect clients. The best thing about them is that they offer a fiber connection. Fibre internet has a lot of advantages over other forms of connection.

Steps On How You Can Start To Make Money At Home Selling WiFi

Internet Connection

To get started, you’ll need an internet connection. You can pick one of these companies to act as your intermediary, Shh don’t mention to them you are reselling…

Zuku Fiber – They have packages from as low as Ks 2,499 per month for up to 5 Mbps. You can get Zuku Fiber if you live in Nairobi, Nakuru, and Mombasa. Here is a list of full Zuku fiber coverage. For the 5 Mbps, you will be getting – 5 Mbps High-Speed Internet, Free installation, and a Free Modem. Here is a website link of available Zuku packages.

If you choose Zuku we recommend; Starting with the 5 Mbps package if you have less than 3 customers. Then upgrade as you get more. For example, if you have 3 customers you can cap each one at 1 Mbps and charges each Ks 1,500. You will be getting Ks 4,500. That’s a profit of Ks 2,000 and your neighbors will be paying for your monthly internet. How cool is that?

Safaricom Fiber – They have packages from Ks 2,999 per month for up to 5 Mbps. Here is a list of Safaricom fiber packages. You can check Safaricom fiber coverage here. 

Budget Of Starting a WiFi Business:

You can start with a budget of around Ks 20,000/=. Hmm you hard me. 

How hard is it:

Starting it is as simple as 2019 – 50 Years. Imagine, that simple.

Requirements Of Starting A Home Internet Business:

Wireless Router – The editor recommends Tenda router since it covers a wide area, unlike other routers. Also, it is relatively cheap. You can get one at Acrab for Ks 2,900/= and have it delivered to your doorstep.

Cat 6 Cable – This will be the link between your router and your neighbor’s router. You will need to know how to crimp a cat 6 cable. If you have no clue don’t worry, here is a YouTube video explaining how you can do that.

It’s only a matter of arranging the colors. Here is a picture of how it is supposed to look like.

Make money at home selling wifi in Kenya. Crimping RJ 45 cable

A box of Cat 6 cable, which is 305 Meters costs Ks 5,000. You can also buy in meters if you are starting with just a few neighbors.

Crimping Tool – This will be assisting you to crimp the cat 6 cables. You can get one here for Ks 1500

RJ 45 Connectors – This costs Ks 10 per piece. You can buy at Acrab. Here is a link.

Fiber Connection – Fiber used to be very expensive back in the day. With demand and demand for it growing, now it has become cheaper than ever. You will need to contact either Safaricom Fiber or Zuku Fiber for connection. This will cost from as low as 2499 for Zuku and Ksh 3,000 Safaricom for full installation. Many already have this set up in place.

Customers – Since you will need to make money you will need to connect fiber to customers for your new business. The more there are, the more you earn.

Mikrotik – You will need this if you want to monitor, limit customers bandwidth and will also ease disconnecting customers that have not made payment. Mikrotik costs Ks 7000

Note: If you get more than 4 customers you will need 8 port switch (going for 1200). 8 Port Switch will handle up to 7 customers. There is a higher version of the switch that can handle up to 15 customers.

What next: Connection

After you have set up a fiber connection in place at your home. It is time to start making money. Connect fiber to customers by running the cable from your home. Crimp the cable and set up the router. That’s it and you start earning money. As said earlier, the more customers you get, the more you earn.

Bonus Tips:

  • To get more revenue. You need to live in an apartment that has many houses.
  • If you are poor in sales or shy to talk to neighbors to convince in connection. There is an alternative. Talk to the caretaker of the apartment to find your clients and you give him/her a motivational tip. That will be a win-win for both of you.
  • As the customer increases, choose a higher package. It is very easy to upgrade for both Zuku and Safaricom Fiber. All you need is to call them and ask for an upgrade.
  • You can also change the name of your Wi-Fi to read something like; Get Connected @ 1k.

        question….lets say you have 10 clients how many MBPS DO YOU NEED TO START WITH and does zuku allow you to resell the wifi

        1. For the 10 clients, if you plan to offer each 4mbps you will need around 45mbps. Zuku has no official documentation that bans the reselling of their internet. You can purchase and distribute.
