Telkom Kenya has officialy upped the mobile market price wars by becoming the first mobile service provider to let customers make free calls within its network.
The Bunda- free calls to all promotion will see Orange mobile customers make free calls to all subscribers on Orange mobile, Orange Wireless or Telkom Fixed from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m daily from Monday 26th July 2010 until 31st August 2010.
After these hours, customers will then enjoy making calls at Kshs. 1 per minute to friends and family and Kshs. 4 to others on the same network and Kshs. 8 for off net calls.
