Telkom Kenya has revised its prices following the amendment of the Excise Duty Act 2015. This follows the introduction of the revised Finance Act 2021 which came into effect on July 1. The Act has led to an increase in Excise Duty from 15 per cent to 20 per cent.
“Although these additional taxes have led to an increase in the cost of Voice and Data services, Telkom remains committed to deliver best value to our customers,” Telkom chief executive officer Mugo Kibati said.
From July 6 2021, Telkom’s headline prices for the Pay-As-You-Go Telkom-to-Telkom Voice will increase to Sh. 2.78. The Pay-As-You-Go Voice for off-net calls will increase to Sh. 4.30. The cost to send an SMS within the Telkom network and across other networks will be Sh.1.15. In addition, the Pay-As-You-Go price for Mobile Data will increase to Sh. 4.50 per megabyte.
