We are a time where buying data bundles to access the Internet is as normal as buying bread from the shop. This has led to stiff competition in the industry and when a player changes their tier, the others have to step up to compete.
Well, now Telkom Kenya has revised their daily, weekly and monthly bundles where you now get more data for the same price. This is good news for the millions of Telkom users out there who use their network everyday .
|Validity||Old Package||New Package||Price (Kshs)|
As you can see from the table above, some of the data bundle offerings have received a 100% hike at the same price point which is nice to see. At the low end, you can get a healthy 70MB for only KES 10 and you can get as much as 50GB of data for KES 3,000 a month up from 36GB.
I’ve been a regular customer of the 500MB daily bundle and I’m happy that now you can get 700MB for the same price. This is more than enough for me to stream on Spotify or browse casually on Twitter.
The 2GB daily data for KES 100 , Night Owl 5GB data for KES 39, the 30GB bundle for KES 1000 and the Mzito Combo bundles are still unaffected by the new changes.
Telkom Kenya has confirmed the new changes when I enquired. “We have revised our data offers and it is a permanent offer,” a spokesperson confirmed.
The new changes are a welcome reply to Airtel’s new Amazing Data Bundles that they announced last month. Airtel were offering upto 100% in some offerings and now Telkom has replied with a similar approach. This is all a win win for the consumers as now we can have more data allowances for the same price.
