Kichose has implemented five diverse internet products and solutions to support our customer needs in Kichose’s countries of operation. The suite consists of two unmanaged and three managed products. The unmanaged products, namely Broadband Internet & Dedicated internet Access (DIA) are a resell on an in-country service providing basic internet connectivity at a market comparable price. The unmanaged products do not provide SLA’s and are purely best effort.

The managed services namely Managed DIA, Business Internet and IPVPN are business class services with associated SLA’s. These services are designed to deliver a superior performance supporting the wholesale and enterprise customer’s needs. Both unmanaged and managed services provide diverse connectivity from Kichose’s MPLS network and are well suited as backup, top up or primary service to a MPLS network. As a result, complimenting a SD-WAN implementation ensuring no single point of failure (SPOF)

Our offerings include


Broadband Internet

This product is a resell of an in-country broadband service which consists of an asymmetrical last mile and contended internet service. The service is provided from the customer premises where the provider will install their CPE device. The broadband internet service does not touch Kichose’s equipment and is considered an unmanaged service.


Dedicated Internet Access

This product is a resell of an in-country DIA service. The last mile consists of a symmetrical last mile where the up speed is equal to the down speed and the internet breakout is uncontended i.e 1:1 The service does not touch Kichose’s network and therefore considered as an unmanaged service.


The IPVPN product is regarded as a premium internet services with Service Level Agreements (SLA) on availability, packet drop, latency and jitter with associated credits. A tunnel is created across the internet, which terminates at a predefined NNI point, and subsequently handed over to the customer. Customers can opt to either take the service into their own VPN cloud or the internet. The IPVPN service is a physical diverse path from our MPLS core infrastructure and is well suited as a backup for MPLS or complementary to an SDWAN implementation.

There are various SLA’s offered with IPVPN which require some technical build criteria with associated credits when out of SLA. SLA’s offered will be on availability along with IPSLA statistics (ie packet drop, Latency and Jitter). SLA’s range from Silver at 99% uptime to Platinum service at 99.5% uptime.


Business Internet

The service consists of an enterprise last mile which is an uncontended service (1:1) The medium will either be fibre, copper or wireless. The internet service is uncontended with local internet breakout. The internet service breaks out from Kichose’s point of presence and not from the customer’s premises as the case with broadband and DIA services. The business internet product is managed via Service Level Agreements (SLA) on availability.

There are various SLA’s offered with business internet which require a technical build criterion with associated credits when out of SLA. SLA’s offered will be on availability only. Standards SLA’s offered are silver, Gold and Platinum, ranging from 99 to 99.5% up time.
