Making the announcement, Airtel Kenya CEO Prasanta Das Sarma stated that the new move would meet the needs of their subscribers.

“We endeavour to keep giving our customers the very best products and services that will positively impact their lives,” Airtel CEO was quoted by the Nation.

Airtel subscribers will be required to subscribe daily, weekly and monthly packages of Sh10, Sh50 and Sh150 respectively.

To add icing on the cake, its subscribers will be guaranteed 100 minutes daily or 3,000 monthly for calling within the Airtel network.

Hours after airtel’s announcement, Safaricom also stated that they had made other initiatives to make M-pesa more convenient for its subscribers.

Safaricom will implement a 50% tariff reduction for all Lipa Na M-PESA Buy Goods merchant fees. Under this new Lipa Na M-PESA tariff, merchants will be charged a maximum of 0.5% of the transaction amount, down from the previous maximum of 1%.

In addition, Lipa na M-PESA merchants will charged a flat fee of Sh200, for any payments above Sh40,000.

“We trust that this development will boost the attractiveness of the Lipa Na M-PESA platform to more small and medium enterprises while making the service more affordable compared to other alternatives in the market,” Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore, said.
