Safaricom has announced a revamp of its PostPay and All-in-One plans, which will result in lower prices on the consolidated Go Monthly proposition for customers.
The Go Monthly 1K plan will cost Sh1,000, down from Sh1050; the 2K plan will cost Sh2,000, down from Sh2,100; and the 3K plan will cost Sh3,000, down from Sh3,150.
Furthermore, the 5K plan will cost Sh5,000 instead of Sh5,200, and the 10K plan will cost Sh10,000 instead of Sh10,430.
The telco has reduced the pricing of its monthly plans, reversing a price increase implemented in July 2021 as a result of the increase in Excise Duty on Airtime and Telephone Services from 15% to 20%.
“By consolidating our monthly plans, we seek to simplify our product offering while enabling our customers to enjoy a digital lifestyle in an affordable manner,” said Peter Ndegwa, CEO, of Safaricom PLC.

Customers on all Go Monthly plans will receive a free 2GB YouTube subscription each month, while customers on the 5k and 10k plans will receive unlimited data capped at 45GB and 100GB, respectively, after which they will browse at 3Mbps speed.
Customers who subscribe to Go Monthly will be able to use their minutes to call across all local networks as well as China, India, the United States, and Canada.
As part of the revamp, the plans will be valid for 30 days, with only data rolling over upon PostPay renewal or purchase of another monthly bundle.
Safaricom also intends to launch a device bundling option that will allow Go Monthly customers to purchase 4G and 5G smartphones through a monthly repayment plan that includes data, voice, and SMS bundles.
