Safaricom has tailored a package that will enable its customers subscribing for the telco’s All in One Monthly Bundle to enjoy an additional 5 Gigabytes of YouTube free of charge, valid for 30 days.

The offer, which was launched yesterday, will be available to the telco’s customers up to July 5, 2019 with the firm’s clients having the choice of customizing the bundles based on their needs and their budget with packages available from Ksh. 1,000 to Ksh. 10,000.

According to Safaricom’s Chief Customer Officer Sylvia Mulinge, the package was designed to ensure that the country’s population, who are increasingly turning to video consumption, have access to a bundle that is convenient and affordable.

“Kenyans are increasingly turning to video consumption on the internet, with music, comedy, news and sports emerging as the most popular online video content in the country. To meet this need, we are providing our customers with an additional free 5 GB of YouTube streaming that they can consume at any time of the day within a month,” Ms.Mulinge said in an official statement.

“We also continue to expand our network across the country to ensure that Kenyans have access to strong, reliable and superfast 4G+ coverage wherever they may be,” the Safaricom Chief Customer Officer added.

Safaricom has been expanding its network to meet growing data usage as the uptake of smartphones continues to explode in the country. The company recently announced that it will double its 4G and 4G+ coverage by rolling out an extra 2,000 base stations across the country, including in more than 600 towns. This will bring the firm’s local 4G and 4G+ base stations to about 5,000.
