“This milestone will ensure faster and more reliable connectivity that empowers businesses, communities, and individuals, enabling them to actively engage in the digital economy,” Equity Bank said in a statement.

To access the 5G services, customers will need to have a 5G capable device supported by a 4G LTE SIM card. For customers using a 3G SIM card, they will have to visit their nearest Equity branch to acquire a 4G LTE SIM card.
