A Look at Safaricom’s New Data Bundles arrangement


Safaricom has today relieved many of its mobile data  subscribers with the new Data bundles arrangement. There has been an outcry from its customers since the giant telco  changed the pricing and validity period of data bundles in february this year.

Well, this are the details of the new offer:

  • The new data bundles will be available to Safaricom Pre-pay and Post-Pay subscribers and they will be able to access mobile internet service through buying data bundles.

  • To subscribe for the daily bundles, customers will be required to dial *544# from their phones, the bundles will be valid for 24hrs after which they expire.
  • However, the bundles will roll over to the next day should the subscriber purchase another Daily Data Bundle before expiry.
  • Under the daily Data bundle, customers will have an option of purchasing data bundles from 7MB from as low as Kshs. 5 up to 150MB at Kshs. 50
  • The weekly bundles will be valid for 7 days from the time of purchase.
  • At the expiry of 7 days, any unused bundles will expire and will be permanently unavailable. However, if you buy another bundle before the lapse of the 7 days, your unused bundle will be rolled over and be available to you for the validity period of the new bundle you have purchased.
  • The Weekly bundles will be available from 5MB at Kshs 5 to 130MB at Kshs 100
