Telkom Kenya’s Pawa bundle users to get bonus SMS and mobile data after revamp

Telkom has revamped its mobile Voice bundles. The Pawa voice bundles come with added value packs for SMS and mobile internet data.

The Voice bundle revamp builds onto Telkom’s strong, consumer-centric ethos, with the telco committed to providing innovative, accessible and refreshingly simple solutions that address the customers’ everyday communication needs.

Data from the Communications Authority for the quarter ending June, 2020, for the financial year 2019/2020, shows that Telkom’s outgoing voice traffic rose from 486.7 million minutes, posted in the previous quarter, to 524.2 million minutes in that quarter ending June, 2020.

Eric Achola, Director of Marketing, Telkom Kenya, says: “It is worth noting that SMS and WhatsApp communication are popular among the young audiences who have been actively at home following the prolonged closure of educational institutions due to the current pandemic.”

Achola adds: “Many consumers are now making more voice calls as they reach out to their family, friends and colleagues.”

Subscribers can sign up for the Pawa voice bundles by dialing *544#. One will be allowed to buy another bundle before the existing bundle expires, which will see a cumulative increase to their SMS, data and minutes.

Recently, Telkom launched the Kaduda 4G device – a series of smart feature phones retailing at accessible price points, enabling more of its customers to have access to additional features and applications not seen in previous Kaduda feature phones released to the market by the company.
