Mobile data wars have always been a norm in Kenya, and for the most part, consumers benefit from the tussles because operators are tasked to front bargains to appeal to their customers.
Telkom Kenya, for instance, is known for its tens of data products that have been developed to be attractive to different consumers and their internet needs. The carrier is also known for offering affordable data products and further made their deals sweeter by adding more data units to already attractive subscriptions.
Telkom appears to have made credit refills from M-PESA an easy process following a feature we saw in the *544# menu. The shortcode, which is used across all Kenya networks to purchase data bundles has its first package identifier linked to direct M-PESA top-ups should a user choose to do so.
