Safaricom has announced a 53% price cut on their Home data bundles offering. The price cut has been implemented through the introduction of new bundles, Easy30 and Easy50 at Ksh.3,500 for 30 GB and Ksh.6,000 for 50 GB respectively.
The Easy30 bundle has a validity period of 30 days while the Easy50 bundle extends the validity period to 45 days. Customers will also have the ability to roll over any unused bundles by purchasing additional bundles, however, those who exhaust their bundles before the end of the validity period, they will still be able to access the internet, at capped speeds of 256 kbps and at no additional cost until the end of the period – seemingly making the data bundles “unlimited”.
“The new Easy Bundles have been designed with the needs of the modern Kenyan family in mind. In addition, the affordability of the Easy data bundles will supplement our nationwide 4G coverage ensuring that each home now has access to world-class, quality, high-speed broadband,” said Joseph Ogutu, Director – Strategy, Safaricom.
Besides the Easy30 and Easy50 packages, customers on the BIGBox or Safaricom Digital Internet and TV Box can also purchase a 15 GB bundle at a Ksh.3,199 and a 5 GB bundle at Ksh.1,199, both of which are valid for 30 days.
Two things to note, Safaricom Home data bundles is not the same as Safaricom Home Fibre. The Home data bundles are a mobile broadband offering that is exclusively available through the new Safaricom Digital Internet and TV Box and the Safaricom BIGBox. So anyone without any of these two devices will not be eligible for the bundles.
