The free 30 GB Internet bundle goes to show that we have the customer at heart and want to give them the opportunity of trying out our data offering and making an informed long-term choice of Internet service provider, as a result of their experience on our network,” says Mlaghui.

“There has been an appreciation of the Internet’s use in the country, with the latest statistics from the Communication Authority of Kenya showing about 85% Internet penetration. The convenience of the Internet and its impact in simplifying the lives of our customers and Kenyans, makes this partnership with DStv, another demonstrable example of the Internet’s integration into everyday living,” adds Mlaghui.

“In an effort to offer them added value, we are committed to working through partnerships such as these to make our customers’ experiences better and more relevant whenever and wherever they engage with us. TheDStv Na Net promotion will give our customers 1 month Compact bouquet to DStv viewing at the most affordable price and a convenient Internet connection for the home at the most affordable price,” said Kombo.
