Relief To Internet Users As Kimani Ichungwah Seeks Following Changes On Internet Bundles

Many poor Kenyans will be relieved if Kimani Ichungwah’s efforts to have internet service providers adopt KPLC Token technichalities and offer internet bundles with no expiry come to pass. This follows after the Majority leader of the National Assembly raised a motion at the parliament urging the internet service providers to lift the expiry date imposed on the internet bundles after every purchase.

While addressing colleagues in Parliament on Thursday, November 24, Ichungwah was concerned that many Kenyans lose money when internet bundles expire before the user depletes the package.

Kimani said, “It is indeed true that the internet is very expensive in Kenya because of the mode of purchase.The moment you buy weekly bundles and fail to use the package, they expire, and you end up losing money.”

“According to Communication Authority (CA), 42.5 per cent of Kenyans use internet everyday and majority of them do that through smartphones and will benefit from this statement,” he added.

Supporting Hassan’s remarks, Ichungwah told the house, “If the bundles do not expire, it will help millions of poor Kenyans who rely on internet and work online.”
