Kenya's number one telco Safaricom announced a revamp of its monthly plans that will see its PostPay and All-in-One plans consolidated under the Go Monthly proposition, with customers set to enjoy lower prices.
The revamp will see customers enjoy more value from their favourite Go Monthly plans after Safaricom reduced the pricing of its monthly plans, reversing a price increase implemented in July 2021.
That followed the adjustment of Excise Duty on Airtime and Telephone Services from 15 per cent to 20 per cent.
Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa said the company's commitment was to offer greater value and experience to its consumers through its services and products.
He said Safaricom aims to simplify its product offering as they allow its subscribers to enjoy a digital lifestyle affordably.
"Our commitment to our customers is to offer greater value and deliver a great experience with our products and services," Ndegwa said.
"By consolidating our monthly plans, we seek to simplify our product offering while enabling our customers to enjoy a digital lifestyle in an affordable manner."
Go Monthly 1K plan will go for Sh1,000, down from Sh105; the 2K plan will go for Sh2,000 down from Sh2,100; the 3K plan will go for Sh3,000 down from Sh3,150; the 5K plan will go for Sh5,000 down from 5,200; while the 10K plan will go for Sh10,000, down from Sh10,430.
All Go Monthly customers will enjoy free 2GB YouTube every month, while customers on the 5k and 10k plans will enjoy unlimited data capped at 45GB and 100GB respectively, after which they will browse at 3Mbps speed.
Go Monthly customers can use their minutes to call across all local networks and China, India, USA, and Canada.
As part of the revamp, the plans will have a validity of 30 days, and only data will roll over upon renewal of PostPay or purchase of another monthly bundle.
From as low as Sh500 per month, customers who prefer minutes or the internet only can also enjoy the minutes or data-only Go Monthly plans, respectively.
Safaricom also plans to introduce a device bundling option that will enable Go Monthly customers to acquire 4G and 5G smartphones via a monthly repayment plan inclusive of data, voice, and SMS bundles.
Customers can join PostPay or access all available Go Monthly plans via MySafaricom App, Safaricom.com and USSD *544#.
Over the years, Safaricom has consistently enhanced its PostPay to give customers more value, access to lifestyle deals, and add the convenience of customers joining from the comfort of their phones, removing the need to visit Safaricom Shops.
