Yesterday, Telkom Kenya introduced yet another offering dubbed Changa Bundle. With this, Telkom subscribers are able to share data, minutes, voice and SMSs with other subscribers. Think of ‘Sambaza’ by Safaricom.
“The discerning customer is keen to pool resources wherever possible. As Kenyans, we share in the spirit of coming together to share costs on occasiosn where we cannot manage to shoulder a financial obligaton as individuals. Telkom, guided by our belief that Mobile Data is a fundamental human right, proceeded to create a bundle that speaks to the mind of the Kenyan consumer; giving them the ability to acquire a large bundle with more resources that they can share with family and friends,” said Telkom’s Director of Marketing, Eric ACHOLA.
Available to prepaid customers
Telkom Changa bundle is available to its prepaid customers only. This makes sense and is at par with what is offered by other players in the industry. With Ksh 1,500, Telkom says a subscriber can get 100 GB of data, 200 on-net minutes, 50 off-net minutes, and 200 SMSs and share with their family or friends.
How to use Telkom Changa bundle
To get started with Telkom Changa Bundle:
- Dial *444£ and choose option 4
- Opt-in to this all-in-one bundle
Note: The bundle has a validity period of 30 days and there is no roll-over option.
Set up a group with up to 5 members
A Nominator (Main Purchaser) will first buy the bundle, then set up a group with at least 3 and at most 5 members. The Nominator’s number is subscribed automatically. Changa Bundle groups will then be set up within 24 hours, Monday through to Friday, for Telkom customers to enjoy the service.
“There is no other product in the market that can enable you to acquire and access such large amounts of Mobile Data at a very competitive rate, that you can then proceed to share with others,” concluded Mr. ACHOLA.
