Customers may now get up to 100 percent more data on their favorite daily, weekly, monthly, and select all-in-one plans thanks to a revision of Safaricom’s data plans. Customers on both postpay and prepay plans will be able to explore more at no additional cost.
The decision to provide customers with more value comes in response to the current economic climate, which has seen the cost of living rise. The KES 20 daily plan has been increased to 100MB from 50MB; the KES 99 weekly plan has been increased to 500MB from 350MB; and the KES 1000 monthly plan has been upgraded to 7GB from 5GB.
“Kenya’s economy has shown considerable resilience to the enormous shocks it has been subjected to over the last two years. At Safaricom, we recognize the additional economic strain that our customers have had to bear and remain committed to delivering solutions that provide a cushion while enabling them to enjoy the transformative power of the internet,” said Peter Ndegwa, CEO – Safaricom PLC.
Safaricom has continued to support Kenyans in a variety of ways, including doubling fiber speeds as remote learning and working became more common, partnering with various learning institutions to provide discounted data, zero-rating M-PESA transactions and increasing M-PESA wallet limits, and enabling MSMEs through Pochi la Biashara.
The new data plans build on the success of the Mwelekeo Ni Internet campaign, which launched in November last year to highlight the internet’s transformative power, provide data offers, and allow people to purchase affordable 4G handsets through the Lipa Mdogo Mdogo device finance plan.
Customers can access the complete range of redesigned bundles by dialing *544# or using the MySafaricom app.
