Access to internet services has experienced tremendous growth especially during the COVID 19 period whereby the essential nature of social distancing brought about the working from home trend which saw a boost in revenue for the internet service providers.
Depending on preference, one may settle for a variety of options depending on the cost and speed of the internet packages on offer whereby the higher the speeds, the costly the package in addition to the required setups included such as receivers, routers etc.
Those requiring modest internet access settle for data bundles provided by the various network providers such as Safaricom, Airtel and Telkom.
However, one downside of the internet bundles in comparison to the aforementioned ISP setups is unlimited data whereby data bundles require constant renewing depending on data usage and expiry duration of the selected data bundle type.
For example, Safaricom offers two types of data bundles which include;
Bundles with expiry: This bundle type is set to deplete within a set duration irrespective of whether the allocated data is fully utilized or not.
Non-expiry bundles: This bundle type is only depleted upon full utilization of the allocated data.
