When it comes to data bundles, Telkom Kenya has had some of the best offers in the industry thus far, the telco has further revamped its Mzito bundles in what it calls as built with customer needs in mind. From the revised bundles, subscribers are set to get more data allocation as well as non-expiry bundles. Telkom Kenya says the decision was influenced by increased mobile data consumption especially by millennials.
Since the Corona virus pandemic happened early in 2020, Kenyan companies advised their staff to work from home as a way to practice social distancing aimed at curbing its spread. And while most Kenyans lost their jobs back then, there has been an increase in online activities as more companies moved their services online. Kenyans are now opting to further their skills through online learning as well as shopping online for their favorite commodities.

Speaking on the new bundle offers, Telkom Kenya’s Director of Marketing Eric Achola said the bundle combos were settled on after analyzing evolving and data needs of its customers. Achola continued by acknowledging that subscribers are keen to get affordable packages at the same time expecting a comprehensive offering that addresses dynamic needs such as browsing, downloading, streaming and updating their apps, actions that are now integral in everyday life.
In the new plan, customers who purchase Mzito 500 and 1000 bundles will not see them expire, giving them opportunity to fully utilize them.
