Unlimited access from Orange Kenya

By Carole Kimutai, Nairobi, Kenya

Integrated telecommunications services provider Telkom Kenya has launched unlimited internet bundles for its Orange mobile and 3G broadband customers. The newly-launched bundles will see Orange mobile customers enjoy unlimited internet for as low as KSh 39 daily, KSh 249 weekly and KSh 990 monthly, while the Orange Internet Everywhere 3G modem customers will access unlimited internet for KSh 990 and KSh 2,990 on a weekly and monthly basis respectively.

“Orange is keen on increasing its customer acquisition and retention by offering relevant and cost effective data services in a bid to further strengthen its position as the leading provider of data services in the country,” said Telkom Kenya Chief Corporate Communications Officer, Angela Nganga-Mumo.

The new mobile unlimited internet bundles can be purchased by dialing #123# while modem users can buy their broadband bundles through the Orange portal.

“We are confident that with our reliable internet connectivity and now affordable bundles, we have greatly improved the value proposition to our customers. Moreover, this fast and convenient access of data comes at a time when Kenyans are appreciating the use of ICT in the transaction of business, rather than just for social communication,” added Mumo.

Orange launched its 21Mbps 3G network in August 2011 with a view to expanding the Orange mobile and data customer base.

According to the latest CCK report, the data market recorded a 14% increase in the number of internet users to 14.3 million. This growth was accelerated by increased mobile subscriptions and the ease of accessing the service.
