Telkom Kenya’s new data bundles are more affordable

Aldo Mareuse - Telkom Kenya CEO

Telkom Kenya has introduced new data bundles while also introducing validity periods for the different data offerings. Most of their bundles previously had a 90 day validity period but they have now introduced new daily, weekly and monthly bundles. The new bundles are also cheaper albeit with a shorter validity period.

The telco has also introduced notifications that will let customers know of the impending expiry of their bundles that will be sent 48 hours and 24 hours before the expiry of the bundles. Customers will be able to extend the expiry periods of their data bundles before they expire by purchasing another bundle of equal or higher validity before the expiry of their current bundle. The Telkom Kenya off bundle rate is Ksh. 4 per MB.

Customers can buy the new bundles by dialing *544# on their phone or by visiting on their laptop.
