Safaricom has offered its customers using 5G smartphones free 5GB data bundles for 24 hours for them to experience its 5G network speeds as the telco seeks to expand coverage.

The free data is exclusively available to all Safaricom subscribers using 5G smartphones and can be redeemed by going to MySafaricom App under ‘Go Monthly’ then ‘Go 5G’ option.

The giant telecommunications company revealed on Wednesday that the offer will be available until June 24 with each Safaricom 5G customer only allowed to redeem it once.

“As a digital lifestyle enabler, we continue to avail exciting data offers, and invest in our network to provide our customers a worry-free experience. We are also keen to empower Kenyans to start exploring the limitless possibilities that 5G provides,” Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa said.

The offer comes one month after Safaricom introduced 5G data bundles with a view to enable more than 400,000 customers using 5G smartphones to test the ultra-fast speeds.

Safaricom says the 5G bundles are personalised based on usage, and can be accessed on Tunukiwa through MySafaricom App,, and USSD *444# or *544#.

Home and Enterprise customers in 5G zones will also access the network via 5G Wi-Fi.
