Orange Surf and Talk offer hits the market as data market race hots up
Telecommunications solutions provider Telkom Kenya has moved to further stir the local residential fixed voice and data market with the launch of a new offer dubbed Surf & Talk.
Styled as a bundled offering on internet and voice, the Surf & Talk offer will be available on Telkom Kenya’s Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) platform which enables faster data transmission over copper telephone lines than conventional voice band modems.
Speaking when she confirmed the launch of the Surf &Talk offer, Telkom Kenya Head of Corporate Communications Angela Ng’ang’a-Mumo confirmed the firm’s plans to enhance its residential data delivery solutions as part of a strategic corporate growth plan.
“At Orange, we are very clear that data and fixed line voice services remain the most effective avenues to fuel the growth of Telkom Kenya,” Ng’ang’a-Mumo said.
And added: “by launching Surf&Talk, we are very keen to deepen access to the internet from the comfort of our customers’ homes through the fastest most reliable avenue which remains a copper cable transmission line.”
To enjoy Surf &Talk, customers without a fixed line will be accorded a Kshs. 3,395 waiver to connect on the Telkom Kenya fixed line service. Signed up customers will also enjoy up to 120 free minutes depending on the offer taken alongside higher downloads of up to 2MB for the offer available on both Prepaid and postpaid plans.
Customer can confirm eligibility of their fixed line by visiting their nearest Orange Shops or calling 121 from Orange and Telkom networks and 020-2222121 from other networks.
Besides presenting a combination of voice and data services, customers taking advantage of Surf&Talk offer will received a free Panasonic headset, up to 120 free talk time minutes on the Orange/Telkom network, Free Installation and Multi-WiFi connectivity in the home among other attractive features.
