In Ghana, the telcos do not allow customers to share data and airtime with their family and friends but that has been made possible by Telkom Kenya with a product called Chaga Bundled, valued at $12.76 (a little over GHS100).
According to Techweez, a group of a minimum of three people and a maximum of 5 people can share 100 GB of data, 200 on-net minutes, 50 off-net minutes, and 200 SMSs for the stated price.
“The discerning customer is keen to pool resources wherever possible. As Kenyans, we share in the spirit of coming together to share costs on occasiosn where we cannot manage to shoulder a financial obligaton as individuals,” Telkom’s Director of Marketing, Eric Achola said.
“Telkom, guided by our belief that Mobile Data is a fundamental human right, proceeded to create a bundle that speaks to the mind of the Kenyan consumer; giving them the ability to acquire a large bundle with more resources that they can
share with family and friends,” Achola added.
“There is no other product in the market that can enable you to acquire and access such large amounts of Mobile Data at a very competitive rate, that you can then proceed to share with others,” Achola said.
To purchase the bundle customers should dial *444*4# on their phones. The shared bundle will last 30 days with no roll-over.
