YU’s Low Cost Data Bundles.
In a recent post, I had (inaccurately) said that Zain Kenya had launched some new low cost prepaid and postpaid data bundles. As it turned out, unknown to me at the time, Zain had actually launched the bundles late last year but they only really stared promoting them (aggressively) over the last week or so.
Therefore, on this post, rather than make the same mistake, I would just like to point out some “new” information that has come to my attention this week. YU which is Kenya’s third mobile network in terms of total subscribers has launched a range of low cost prepaid limited and unlimited use data bundles.
The rates are even lower than Zain Kenya’s, although, once again, they are only available on 2.5G speeds. In addition, the YU data modem costs are also lower than the competition at Kes. 1,799.00. The details on the bundles are as follows:
- Unlimited Daily: Kes. 49.00
- Unlimited Monthly: Kes. 999.00
- 100 MB Data Bundle: Kes. 250.00
- 250 MB Data Bundle: Kes. 500.00
- 750 MB Data Bundle: Kes. 1,000.00
- 3 GB Data Bundle: Kes. 2,000.00
