Telkom Kenya announces the launch of Free Zones for its pre-paid voice customers.

Telkom Free Zones are selected areas where Telkom Kenya offers free calls, all day and all night, with no conditions. The introduction of the Telkom Free zones is part of Telkom’s commitment to offer more value and benefit to its customers.

All one needs is to activate their Telkom line with as little as KSh.50. Calls made to other networks will still be charged at the prevailing Pay As You Go (PAYG) rate of KSh 3.30 per minute. A Telkom customer needs to dial *888# to find out if they are in a Telkom Free Zone.

Telkom’s Free Zones have so far been launched in the larger Nyanza region – Kisumu, Siaya, Homabay and South Nyanza. Other Free Zone areas are: Machakos, Muranga, Nyahururu, Eldoret, Cherangany and Turbo - with more zones to be announced soon.

Telkom recently signed a loan agreement worth KSh.4.1 Billion with the European Investment Bank (EIB). The funds will be used to expand the coverage and capacity of Telkom’s network, in response to growing customer demand.

Amer Atwi, MD, Telkom's Mobile Division
The introduction of the Telkom Free Zones targets to provide customers with more opportunity to communicate, while at the same time getting to enjoy our network quality. One does not need to subscribe to a specific offer or bundle to enjoy the Telkom Free Zones.
