Sambaza Bundles transfers have been limited to 20MB a day from 999MB by Safaricom.
“Any data bundle not used within its validity time will be deleted and will not be available for use,”. As a rule Safaricom says
It is not possible to add the expiry time by buying new bundles.
The new rules also limit sending of data bundles between customers to a maximum of 10MB per transaction and only two transactions (20MB) in a day.
In January, Safaricom reduced the limit on the number of times one SIM card can Sambaza bundles in a month from 50 to 20.
Seems like the move was aimed at controlling a growing black-market that was reselling cheaper data bundles, popularly known as “Safaricom bundles mwitu”.
“Bundles mwitu” sellers in Kenya have reduced considerably because of the bundle limits introduced by Safaricom.
