Nairobi, January 18, 2011… Integrated telecommunications services provider Orange has launched unlimited internet bundles for its Orange Mobile and 3G broadband customers.

The newly launched bundles will see Orange mobile customers enjoy unlimited internet for as low as Ksh 39 daily, Ksh 249 weekly and KSh 990 monthly while the Orange Internet Everywhere 3G modem customers will access unlimited internet for Ksh 990 and Ksh 2990 on a weekly and monthly basis respectively.

The new mobile unlimited internet bundles can be purchased by dialing #123# while the broadband bundles can be purchased from the Orange portal and are subject to a fair user policy.

The launch comes in the wake of Orange’s intent to increase its customer acquisition and retention by offering relevant and cost effective data services in a bid to further strengthen its position as the leading provider of data services in the country.

In a press statement issued from their offices, Telkom Kenya Chief Corporate Communication Officer Angela Nganga-Mumo said,” We are confident that with our reliable internet connectivity and now affordable bundles, we will have greatly improved the value proposition to our customers. Moreover, this fast and convenient access of data comes at a time when Kenyans are appreciating the use of ICT in the transaction of business, rather than just for social communication.”

According to the latest CCK report, the data market recorded a 14 % increase in the number of internet users to 14.3 million. This growth was accelerated by increased mobile subscriptions and the ease of accessing the service based on customer requirement and usage.

Orange Internet Everywhere 3G modems are available at all Orange shops and partner outlets countrywide and currently retail at Kshs 1790/-.
