Safaricom has revamped its Go Monthly Plans that will now see its PostPay and All-in-One plans customers enjoy lower prices.
In a statement, Safaricom says it is reversing a price increase that was implemented in July 2021.
This follows the adjustment of excise duty on airtime and telephone services from 15 percent to 20 percent.
The revision will see the Monthly 1K plan go for 1,000 shillings down from 1,050 shillings.
The 2K plan will go for 2,000 shillings down from 2,100 shillings, while the 3K plan will go for 3,000 shillings down from 3,150 shillings.
The 5K plan will go for 5,000 down from 5,200 shillings; while the 10K plan will go for 10,000 shillings, down from 10,430 shillings.
“By consolidating our monthly plans, we seek to simplify our product offering while enabling our customers to enjoy a digital lifestyle in an affordable manner,” Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa said.
Ndegwa also said all Go Monthly customers will enjoy free 2GB YouTube every month.
He further noted that the customers will be able to use their minutes to call across all local networks as well as China, India, USA, and Canada.
“As part of the revamp, the plans will have a validity of 30 days, and only data will roll over upon renewal of PostPay or purchase of another monthly bundle.”
From as low as 500 shillings per month, customers who prefer minutes or internet only can also enjoy the minutes or data-only Go Monthly plans respectively.
Safaricom is also planning to introduce a device bundling option that will enable Go Monthly customers to acquire 4G and 5G smartphones.
