Mareuse says the launch of Freedom Bundles empowers customers to enjoy the benefits of real-time communication with competitively priced data at no extra cost

NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 18 – Telkom has unveiled a new data bundle that gives subscribers free calls within the network, free WhatsApp and free SMSs to any local network.  

Bundle subscribers will also make calls to other networks at Sh2 per minute with daily, weekly and monthly subscription options.

Telkom’s Chief Executive Officer Aldo Mareuse says the launch of Freedom Bundles empowers customers to enjoy the benefits of real-time communication with competitively priced data at no extra cost.

“With this service, they can turn their mobile phones into fully functional personal integrated communications devices.”

“We continue to monitor and review our customer experience, to make it more engaging and superior in quality. We will also continue to develop communication solutions that meet the productivity and lifestyle needs of our growing subscriber base,” adds Mr. Mareuse.

Customers can choose from four options: a Daily bundle at Sh39, a 3 Days bundle at Sh49, a Weekly bundle for as low as Sh99 and for as high as Sh249 and a Monthly bundle for as low as Sh499 and as high as Sh2,999.

Customers can subscribe to Freedom by dialing *544#.  For a subscriber to enjoy the free benefits, they must have a valid Freedom bundle and a data balance of not less than 1MB.

Data, voice and text messaging have contributed largely to the rapid growth of the country’s communication sector. As 4G and 3G mobile coverage grows across the country, Kenyans continue to embrace the use of mobile telecommunication and use of the Internet which is becoming the preferred personalized communication alternative for mobile users.
