Airtel vs Telkom internet data bundles


#21

After kuhamia pahali Airtel network ni mbaya I am torn between using Platinum 1k or nihamie Telkom but I don’t want to change my phone numbers.


#22

Don’t put too much faith on Telkom either.


#23

Interesting that after I told you this you needed an advert to paint it clearly for you.


#24

To be fair i didn’t know the call time was across all networks lol


#25

you just have the other line for data nothing else, thats what i do with my telkom line


#26

Do the allocated resources rollover to the next month if they are not exhausted within the 30 days ? If yes i might port my number to Telkom if that service still exists.


#27

Is there a telco that sells you 30 day data and rolls it over if you don’t use it?


#29

Since Airtel 4G is superb and if you’re interested in more data, they still have 3k unlimited


#30

With Airtel Unliminet if you renew with the same package before expiry the resources accumulate.


#31

Yes, when you renew the same bundle it rolls over.

I’ll update this post when I confirm whether it’s limited to the specific bundle or any monthly for monthly / any weekly for weekly.

[UPDATE] You can renew freedom bundles http://telkom.co.ke/freedom-bundles-1, not these other bundles. And renewing is with a bundle of the same size or larger within a particular wallet. Wallet in this case is either daily, weekly or monthly.

I have to ditch airtel by all means but i dont want to lose the number. Once my current package expires i will port my number to Telkom.

For me Telkom is my main line, it’s the one I use for data calls and texts. My safaricom line is for Mpesa only and since my phone is a single sim i put that Safcom sim on my smartwatch. I use the mySafaricom app on my phone for Mpesa which pushes the ussd to the smartwatch to input my Mpesa pin and life is easy this way
