Safaricom has announced the “Asante Data Sunday” promotion in which customers will get back all the data they use on Friday November 23 and Saturday November 24, 2018. Customers will receive the free data bonus on Sunday November 25, 2018 for use the entire day starting midnight to 11:59 PM.
“This promotion is part of our 18-year anniversary ‘Nawe Kila Wakati’ campaign and is designed to thank our customers for their trust and loyalty over the years. We remain mindful that the success we have achieved in building a world-class mobile broadband network has only been possible due to the immense trust of more than 17 million customers who use our data network every month,” said Charles Kare, Director of Consumer Business, Safaricom.
Starting November 23, 2018, customers can dial *444*20# to view their accumulated data usage and to check their bonus data balance. The bonus data will be consumed first before other existing or purchased data bundles.
The promotion is open to all Safaricom PrePay, Hybrid and PostPay customers with all eligible customers being automatically enrolled in the promotion and to receive the bonus.
As part of its 18th-anniversary campaign, Safaricom also recently announced a promotion where customers can call for Kshs. 1 per minute. Customers will similarly benefit from a free 1 GB data bundle and a special Kshs 1 per minute call rate during their birthdays.
In the last 18 years, Safaricom has expanded its network to provide broadband 4G+, 4G and 3G coverage to 91 per cent of the population and 2G coverage to 96 per cent of the population. The firm was the first in the region to roll out a 4G+ network and the first in the country to deploy 4G and 3G networks.
