Telkom Kenya has some of the best priced data offers here in Kenya, I’ve been very font of their night time data offers whenever I don’t have access to unlimited Wi-Fi network as this basically meets my needs at rock-bottom cost. For a meager Ksh. 60, you’re able to get 700mb daytime data plus 700mb night time data that has since been revised to be active from 10:00pm to 6:00am. And if you really don’t need that much data and would rather use some voice calls instead, the telco provides an option of instead getting 700mb data and free Telkom to Telkom calls for Ksh. 50.
You can have a look at Telkom’s night time data offers here which are activated from 10:00pm to 6:00am. With social distancing directives taking effect and most employers opting to have employees work from their homes, Telkom is surely on top when looking for a reliable, affordable data provider here in Kenya. While Safaricom might boast of enormous customer base and soon selling a fibre based solution to homes, the provider has very expensive rates in comparison.
There are a couple of ways you can check your remaining data balance on the Telkom Kenya network but will be highlighting two of the methods using a USSD code.
