Telkom Kenya revises data packages targeting millenials
Kenya’s telecommunication company Telkom has reviewed its flagship Combo bundle dubbed “Mzito” giving subscribers data, minutes and free night data.
The move has been advised by a marked growth in Mobile Data consumption, largely by millennials. The revised Data and Voice plan (Combo Pack) comes shortly after Telkom announced its KSh 1 Billion investment into the expansion, densification and optimisation of its 4G and 3G networks. The network roll-out will see to the improvement of mobile connectivity, boosting the quality of service to customers.
Announcing the reviewed bundle, Telkom’s MD for the Mobile Division, Amer Atwi said. “The new combo bundle is built with the data and experience needs of our customers in mind. While they continue to demand for affordability, they are also keen on holistic and comprehensive offerings that address their dynamic needs: browsing, downloading, streaming and updating their Apps, actions that are now integral in everyday life.”
Subscribers will be allowed to buy another bundle before the existing bundle expires, which will see a cumulative increase to their data and minutes. This is in addition to the free data which still remains available for night use.
Upon exhaustion of one’s bundle, the customer will revert to being charged at the prevailing Pay As You Go (PAYG) rate of KSh 3.30 per minute for voice and KSh. 4.30 per MB for data.
