 New Safaricom Data Bundles – Safaricom introduces new data bundles

Safaricom Data Bundles – Safaricom has introduced new internet data plans, responding to a public outcry that revolved around the validity periods of bundles especially those accumulated for use during off-peak hours.

The telecommunications firm on Friday ( 10.07.2015) morning revised its four plans – daily, weekly, monthly and 90-day data bundles, all being charged at cheaper rates.

Safaricom Scraps the night shift data bundles

The new tariffs, effective at midnight ( 10.07.2015), will also see safaricom scrap the night bundles which were awarded upon purchase of the normal data and only usable between 10pm and 6am.

“Our new data bundles will be available to Safaricom Pre-pay and Post-pay subscribers and they will be able to access mobile Internet service through buying data bundles,” said Sylvia Mulinge, the director for consumer business at Safaricom.

Exciting Articles

Subscribers reacted negatively to the prevailing tariffs when they were first launched in February this year, complaining about the ‘inadequate’ expiry dates affixed to their data.

The telecom firm in March responded and revised the expiry periods upwards (to a maximum of 90 days), with no chance of this data rolling over if they are not utilised by the deadline.

New Safaricom data bundles rollover

Beginning tonight however Safaricom says customers will be allowed to extend their data expiry dates further on condition that they make a new purchase before the period lapses.

Customers with accumulated night bundles will be allowed to use them during the day on condition that they exhaust them within six months.

“We listened to our subscribers and made the necessary changes to the customer journey to allow them to continue to enjoy the unparalleled data experience that only Safaricom can provide,” said Ms Mulinge.
