Orange Kenya has announced a move to re-align internet bundle s pricing and allocations figures. The new Bundles will be available in chunks of 50 MB, 100 MB, 500MB, 1GB, 5GB, 10GB, 15GB and 20 GB. On the pricing front, prices of 1GB and 20GB data bundles wil see a price reduction of Kshs 750 and Kshs 7,990 respectively, down from 850 and 9,490 respectively. This applies for both GSM and CDMA internet options.
Weekly unlimited bundles stays on, but will see an increase of Kshs 210 to 1200 bob up from 990 bob. Orange CEO Mikhail Ghossein notes that there has been an increase in unlimited bundle uptake and Orange is currntly on a network expansion spree to cater for the increase in demand for the service. This includes expansion to unreached locations and strengthening existing networks.
“While we appreciate the positive uptake of our unlimited offering on this network by our customers, the increased level of investment and expansion that we have already begun has necessitated this change. This review took into consideration the quality of service that we offer to our customers vis a vis the cost of continued upgrade of our transmission backbones and networks,” said Ghossein
The daily internet bundle, previously priced at Kshs 39 also gets a hit to Kshs 50. These price adjustments take effect starting 23rd October.
