Safaricom has announced a new limited bundle that further cuts this call rate to only 1 shilling per minute. “Being on Kenya’s strongest network just got THAT much better! Call across all networks for just Kshs1 this
#JamhuriDay till the 23rd January 2019! Here’s to hour long convos with bae, friends and family! #NaweKilaWakati,” reads the announcement posted on their social media platforms.
The bundled offer gives Safaricom subscribers 18 minutes of talk time to any network in Kenya for a price of Kes.18, valid for 24 hours from the time of purchase. Prepay and hybrid customers get to enjoy this offer which leaves out Postpay customers. To buy the bundle, subscribers will be required to dial *444*18#.
This new bundle call rates will be available until January 23 2019. The bundle offer requires a subscription but in the case the bundle is depleted before the 24 hours, subscribers will be able to repurchase the bundle as many times as they would wish.
These new rates effectively put Safaricom at par with the rest of the pack – albeit for a limited time, as Airtel currently charges a flat call rate of 2 bob per minute across all networks and Telkom charges calls at 1.50 bob per minute to all networks.
