2000 KES gets you a months access to 12 GB of data, 10000 SMS and 1200 minutes of calling. That's 237 MB a day plus 333 SMS plus 40 minutes across networks. At a daily average cost of 67 KES, this is the best value for money on the market for mixed bundles at the 2000 KES price level.
Airtel Unliminet bundles ONLY give you free use of WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter ONCE YOU HAVE USED UP THE DATA in your bundle. Still got data in your bundle? They'll be used first... You pay!
We don't think that there are better mixed bundles around, but if you don't want to spend 2000 KES at a time, then Airtel UnlimiNET Weekly 500 is pretty similar value for money on a weekly basis at 500 KES, or Airtel UnlimiNET Daily 100 for 100 KES on a daily basis.
Safaricom Flex Monthly 2499 is an alternative, offering you 10 GB of data or 10500 SMS or 1166 minutes per month for 2499 KES in Flex. Don't need SMS? Telkom Freedom Monthly 20GB gives you 20 GB data plus 50 MB WhatsApp per day and 1800 minutes on-net. Mainly need data? The same 2000 KES buys you 8 GB in Equitel Data Plus Monthly @Sh2,000, 15 GB in Safaricom Monthly 15GB+Whatsapp and 20 GB in Airtel 30 Day Data 20GB.
Airtel's network is 4G now. Want to connect? Make sure you update your SIM card and that you're on their 2 bob per minute out of bundle tariff. Dial 5442# to activate.
Our review conclusions: Among our preferred bundles. Full steam ahead. Well done Airtel!
