In Kenya, Telkom is one of the telecommunication companies with the best-priced data offers. With just Ksh. 60, 700-megabyte daytime data and 700-megabyte night time data will be yours. What’s more, the terms were revised a few months back to 10:00 pm to 6:00 am active period. Telkom Kenya also covers those that would prefer the use of voice calls as opposed to data with another option of accessing 700-megabyte data plus free calls, albeit, Telkom to Telkom for Ksh. 50.
With the current social distancing rules orchestrated by the novel Corona Virus Pandemic, most company employees have no other option than to work from home. This category of employees has a cause to smile as Telkom is on top of their game in Kenya, providing users with affordable and reliable data. While the likes of Safaricom can boast of a massive customer base, their rates are relatively expensive, making it difficult for the ordinary man on the street to afford. However, the good news is that Telkom Kenya is available to fill that gap with mouth-watering and pocket-friendly packages.
