Pay 3499 KES for a monthly bundle that gives you 300 SMS and 1300 minutes. That 10 SMS and 43 minutes for you to use daily on average for 117 KES. If we're looking at a normal cost of 1 KES per SMS, we can calculate a theoretical cost of calling at 2,5 KES per minutes. Not great, but not bad either. And, strangely enough, more expensive than the the cheaper Equitel Ongea Monthly @Sh1,499.
Telkom Holla Premium and Holla Plus are superior mixed daily bundles at a fraction of the cost, respectively 16 KES and 19 KES per day. If you want to buy monthly bundles, then Safaricom Advantage Plus Superior gives you 3 GB, 1500 SMS and 1500 minutes per month for 2999 KES. For 150 KES—this is 5 KES per day—you can buy Airtel Tubonge 150, giving you 3000 minutes on-net with the off-net calls at 2 KES per minute. This means that calling with this Equitel bundle costs you more than calling off-net with an Airtel Tubonge 150 bundle that comes at less than 1/10th of the price.
Our review conclusions: Average at best. We're not seduced.
