Airtel announces cheaper data bundles, free WhatsApp.


Airtel Kenya Managing Director Prasanta Das Sarma 
Airtel Kenya has decided to cushion their subscribers, days after the Finance Act 2018 forced mobile operators to revise upwards their charges for calls, SMS and data services

Airtel users will now start enjoying more data usage which includes free WhatsApp upon depletion of their data bundles.


Managing Director Prasanta Das Sarma says that they arrived with the decision to revamp its data package to increase uptake of Internet services.

He adds that unlike their competitors, the free WhatsApp by Airtel does not consume your data bundles and thus ensures that customers’ data bundles last for longer, ensuring that customers get free WhatsApp throughout the validity of the mother bundle at no extra cost.

Airtel also claims that their version of free WhatsApp data bundles doesn’t reduce the speeds when the main data bundle is depleted.

“Airtel recognises that offering affordable and quality Internet access is key to enabling customers achieve more in their personal and business development,” said Das Sarma.

Airtel launched the high speed 4G data network in Nairobi and Mombasa in 2018 with planned expansion to other major towns currently underway. However, Airtel’s has a limited network reach especially the 3G and 4G data in most parts of the country.

The Airtel offer comes a few days after Safaricom announced its data bundle offers.
