Airtel Kenya has launched a new mobile plan called Airtel Premier, which allows its customers to purchase an all-in-one bundle of mobile units, including data, SMS, voice, and data. This new product comes with some unique benefits that set it apart from its competitors, including three different choices for each plan, free Airtel to Airtel calls, and the ability to roll over unused bundles to the following month.
Unlike Safaricom’s All-in-One bundle, which offers a fixed choice, Airtel Premier gives customers the option to choose the bundle that best suits their needs. For instance, if a user makes a lot of calls but does not use data often, they can subscribe to a plan that prioritizes call minutes. Alternatively, if they prefer data over call minutes, they can purchase a plan that prioritizes data usage. This level of flexibility allows customers to tailor their mobile plans to their individual needs, rather than being forced into a one-size-fits-all option.
Airtel Premier also offers customers free Airtel to Airtel calls. This means that the minutes will only be consumed when a user makes a call to other networks. This is a significant benefit for customers who regularly communicate with other Airtel users, as it allows them to use their bundled minutes for other purposes.
Furthermore, Airtel Premier bundles can be rolled over, which means they will not expire at the end of the month if they are not fully used. This is a great feature for customers who don’t always use all of their bundled minutes, as it allows them to accumulate unused units and use them in subsequent months.
The launch of Airtel Premier is a significant milestone for Airtel Kenya, as it was announced in the presence of key government officials, including the CS for Cooperatives and SMEs, Simon Chelugui. The government has been keen to encourage telcos to offer more affordable mobile plans, and Airtel Premier is a step in that direction. The launch is also timely, given that many Kenyans have criticized telcos for charging high rates when they are roaming.
Airtel Kenya has also lowered its roaming rates, which is another significant announcement. This move is likely to be well-received by Kenyan mobile users, who have long complained about high roaming charges.
In addition to launching Airtel Premier and lowering its roaming rates, Airtel Kenya has also disbursed over KES 27 billion in Hustler Fund loans, making it one of the platforms that Kenyans use to access loans. This highlights the carrier’s commitment to supporting Kenyan entrepreneurs and small businesses, and its recognition of the important role mobile technology plays in promoting financial inclusion.
