  1. From a consumers point of view, I didn’t see the need of scrapping the 1GB bundle which used to retail at 99/-. They could’ve enhanced it to 2GB at the same price, then allow free whatsapp and twitter or facebook.


  2. Okay first of all there is nothing like unlimited whatsapp for the 100 ksh. They just simply cut down the bundles for the same price. Had you asked the market like you ‘always’ do or seen our activities you would have seen we use the bundles different reasons and for different apps that we were streaming that don’t necessarily involve whatsapp. Congratulations again safaricom for proving that gaining another year of profit for less the service is your main agenda.
