Econet recently launched Kwesé video bundles as the pay-TV fight heats up.
By now we are aware what ‘bundle’ means. These bundles are similar to the WhatsApp and Facebook bundles we are used to except that they give access to Kwesé. Bundling is important because the data prices in this country are ridiculous and so we need these discounted bundles. That way the data you buy will not be used up by some other mischievous app.
Similar to the WhatsApp bundles you get to choose between the daily, weekly and monthly bundles.
The daily bundle costs $2, gives you 2gb to access Kwesé and is valid for 24 hours.
The weekly bundle costs $10, gives you 10gb to access Kwesé and is valid for 7 days.
The monthly bundle costs $35, gives you 35gb to access Kwesé and is valid for 30 days.
To purchase the bundles you have to be an Econet prepaid customer. Let’s look at the step by step process of purchasing a daily bundle:
- Dial *143#
- Select Option 1. Data Bundles
- Select Option 1. Daily Bundles
- Select Option 7. $2-2GB Kwese
- Select Option 1. Buy for Self (If purchasing for yourself)
- Choose your preferred payment method, between airtime and EcoCash.
And that’s it, you have just purchased your Kwesé video bundles. The process is similar if you are buying the weekly or monthly bundles.
Things to note before you purchase your bundles
The bundle lifespan start at day of first use and not purchase and the bundle is credited to the mobile number and not phone. This means you an change handsets and still enjoy the service.
We will be sharing our own experience with the bundles and if you have tried the bundles do let us know what your experience has been.
