As reported by The Sauce, another glitch happened in June 2019 and some Kenyans were able to access free data bundles at the company’s expense. These hacks are starting to raise eyebrows on how the management of the Telco is fairing.
The service provider was recently sued over the expiry of data and loss of unused Internet bundles. Lawyer and ICT practitioner Adrian Kamotho sued the firms and the industry regulator at the and Multimedia Appeals Tribunal. He wanted the three operators compelled to offer a service where subscribers can roll over unused data at no costs.
Shortly after being sued and to celebrate their 19th birthday, the company unveiled new products in a new strategy aimed at ensuring simplicity, transparency and honesty across all its products and operations, Capital Business reported.
This includes the launch of a new data plan and a new calling and SMS plan that will respectively offer data bundles and calling minutes with no expiry. Both Data bundles and Calls and SMS with no expiry are immediately available on *544#.
