Data Bundle is About Convenience and this is why I Think Telkom Kenya has the best

Telkom Kenya 4G Double Data Offer

There is nothing that gives an internet addict like me a more maximum satisfaction than a data bundle that is both affordable and reliable.

Am addicted to twitter (something that has always threatened to tear my marriage apart). My love for Twitter, I dare say is much stronger than anything else. That is why despite all the ‘haki yetu’ chants in the house haven’t manage to break that love.

As a twitter addict, am always shopping for bundles especially those that are reliable. My first internet provider was Safaricom. The internet was strong and reliable. The only problem is that they used to run faster than Usain Bolt and my yawning pockets could not catch up with the speed. I quit. Not that someone had told me to ‘resist’ but my pockets pushed me to.

I soon found myself in Airtel. In the beginning, Airtel was fantastic. The bundles were affordable and I could see my pocket smiling. I loved the way they kept reminding me of my bundle level and coming up with new offers almost every week. Within four months, it was like Airtel got tired of. They withdrew their ‘free twitter’ offer without notice, withdrew their constant bundle reminder and my data started disappearing like the way subsidized unga used to. I quit.

That same night, after ‘breaking up’ with Airtel, I saw an advert on TV. It was about Telkom Kenya. It was exactly about data but a promotion that Telkom was running called #FormNi50 where the company was awarding a brand new Toyota Belta for one lucky customer daily just for topping up.

That romantic ‘msitari’ of Top Up and Win was reason enough for me to fall in love with Telkom. The following morning, with the enthusiasm of a Kenyan voter on a voting day, I visited my nearest Telkom shop and purchased my Telkom Line. I started topping up with the hope of winning the Toyota Belta but it seems the gods had conspired against me.

Going through the various data products provided by Telkom, I realized that the company had a wide range of data bundles and of validity options to meet one’s needs.

To begin with, I discovered that for a mobile data use, Telkom has a self-contained portal from where someone is able to manage their data account by tracking their usage, topping up and buying bundles.

That was not all. I also discovered that there was an option of one to extend the validity periods before the expiry by purchasing another bundle of either equal or higher validity before the expiry of the current bundle with the most affordable price per MB going for as low as 9 cents.

If you think am lying, for the doubting Thomases, here is proof in the image below:

The Swahili say that utamu wa njugu karanga ni kula moja moja and I think the sweetness of every data bundle lies in trying it out.
