Blackouts no longer mean you will be disconnected from the world wide web. Many internet service providers offer FTTH plans compatible with power banks, UPSs, etc. Follow this guide to stay connected!
- First, you need to ask the providers if their fibre services are available in your area.
- Buy a 5V-12V USB cable at around Ks10,000. Shop at renowned electronic stores such as Technoland, Unique, Innwa, etc. We do not recommend online vendors.
- Have a power bank of at least 10,000 mAh capacity. A 5,000 one runs out of juice so quickly.
- Connect the router to the power bank via the USB cable and that’s it. You can still use the internet even during blackouts.
