YouTube has become a daily phenomenon most of us can’t do without especially during this stay at home times, it’s one place some of us find solace in going about our usual activities whether its Music, some LIVE TV action or most importantly a guide to those daily workouts. However, fixed unlimited home internet is still scarcely available to many Kenyans and data bundles has almost become a basic need to communicate and access content on the internet.
Whether its for kids to access educational materials or just want to watch some videos on YouTube, in places where there’s no access to unlimited internet, purchasing data bundles dedicated to YouTube consumption could be cost effective than just buying data for general use.
Why you need dedicated YouTube bundles;
- Its cost effective, especially if your intention is to use the data exclusively to access YouTube content. For instance, buying daily data on the Safaricom network for general use at ksh20 will see you part with 50MB’s worth of data. In comparison, for Ksh20, you’ll get a total of 200MB’s usable within 24hrs.
- Limit usage by other applications. Whether it’s a corrupted app doing its rounds in the background or mistakenly launch an app that requires data, if you purchase YouTube data, it’ll not end up being gobbled without using it for the rightfully intended purpose which is accessing content on YouTube.
