In a bid to tap into the highly competitive market, Safaricom has enabled its subscribers to make international calls at no additional cost using the no-expiry PostPay plan.
Some of the countries Kenyans can connect with their family and friends include the US, India, China, and Canada. In addition, this applies to users subscribed to other local networks.
According to the new value proposition, Safaricom aims to onboard its prepay customers on to the plan. There are about 30 million PrePay customers, in comparison to the 250 thousand PostPay customers.
“Who are more discerning and prefer to have one bill at the end of the month on Safaricom PostPay as well as peace of mind of not having to worry about running out of airtime or having to go out of their way to look for airtime to be able to top up.”
Postpay is available on a 30-day basis with any unused resources rolling over to the next month.
The new plans have been bundled into five categories: KSh1,000, KSh2,000, KSh3,000, KSh5,000 and KSh10,000.
The lowest plan valued at KSh1,000 will have 5GB data, 400 minutes and unlimited SMS, while the KSh10,000 plan allows for a maximum 10,000 minutes, high-speed internet up to 100GB after which the speed is capped to 1MB per second and 10,000 SMS.
