Telkom subscribers have a reason to smile after the mobile network announced the launch of Free Zones for pre-paid customers in various parts of the country.
Telkom is Kenya’s third largest mobile network with over 4.2 million active subscribers on its network.
Free Zones will be areas where subscribers will be able to make free on-net calls, at any time. This they can do without any restrictions or the need to subscribe to any call bundles.
Addressing the media, this what Amer Atwi, MD of Telkom’s Mobile Division said;
“Our customers remain at the heart of what we do and we are glad to offer a stronger value proposition. The introduction of the Telkom Free Zones targets to provide customers with more opportunity to communicate, while at the same time getting to enjoy our network quality,”
This comes at a time where there is stiff competition to who subscribers among the top mobile networks in Kenya.
What you need to enjoy this service
All you need to do is to activate your Telkom line with Ksh. 50. And there after enjoy free Telkom to Telkom calls.
Amer Atwi added that, “One does not need to subscribe to a specific offer or bundle to enjoy the Telkom Free Zones. Whenever you are in a Telkom Free Zone, all your Telkom-to-Telkom calls will automatically be free.”
However, calls made to other networks such as Safaricom, Airtel and Equitel, will attract a Ksh. 3.30 fee per minute.
