Did you know


Did you know you can manage how much you spend while roaming?!

Here are some helpful and important roaming tips to use and remember while travelling this festive season:

  1. Switch off your data and take advantage of Wi-Fi
  2. Roaming Billing is not done in real time and is subject to the specific roaming partners’ tariffs. Therefore, roaming services can be billed up to three (3) months after the roaming event
  3. Since roaming billing is not real time, you may exceed any set usage limit

Did you know the charge for Pay As You Go (PAYG) is Ksh. 8 per MB?

If you’re not subscribed to any bundle, this is the rate charged for accessing the internet. To manage how much you spend on data, subscribe to a data plan by dialing *544# and select your preferred data plan.
