Telkom Kenya has some of the cheapest rates in the country compared to the likes of Safaricom. For quite some time, I’ve been using the PAWA 20 bundle just to see how an ordinary Kenyan can manage spending Ksh. 20 to communicate via text messages, make calls and browse the internet. The amount is relatively low – like a drop in the ocean from what someone would consider enough to effectively communicate on a daily basis. But for an average consumer, it might just be enough to communicate with friends and family for the day.
If you are on the Safaricom network, the best deal you can get for Ksh. 20 is probably the 70Mbs you get after subscribing to data bundles. Beyond that, you can get some talk time, usually capped within what they’ve considered as your target depending on your spending history.
I was actually amazed with just how much you’d be given for the amount on Telkom Kenya’s network. For Ksh. 20, you can subscribe to the PAWA 20 package that gives you access to the following;
- 5 minutes worth of talk time to any network in the country
- 100Mbs data bundle to browse the internet
- Free Telkom to Telkom text messages
Its obvious that you get more value if your contacts are mostly on the Telkom network, but the deal is worthwhile considering what you get on other networks.
To subscribe, just dial *544# and follow the prompts on your Telkom phone.
