Safaricom succumbs to pressure, abolishes night-only bundles
Safaricom has bowed to public pressure and unveiled a new array of data products that will see subscribers use data bonuses during the day.
Customers will be able to extend the validities of their unused data bundles on renewing bundles.
A customer who has bought 7mb daily bundle and uses 5mbs can buy another say one week bundle and carry over the 2mb to join the new validity of seven days.
The new package is an about-turn from the firm’s current unpopular policy, where it restricts use of data bonuses to between 10 p.m to 6 a.m.
“We listened to our subscribers and made the necessary changes to the customer journey to allow them to continue to enjoy the unparalleled data experience that only Safaricom can provide,” said Sylvia Mulinge in a statement.
Under the new data package, subscribers will have 18 options – starting with 5MB of data for Sh5 to packages for 50GBs for under Sh7,000.
The packages have been categorized in daily, weekly, monthly and 90-days data bundles.
