Here’s some good news for Telkom customers, the network operator has extended its data validity period for select bundles.

Customers purchasing data bundles from 25MB to 500MB will now have up to six months to use their data. This extended data period is in effect from today.

While that is great news for those buying smaller bundles we do hope that Telkom extends this to larger bundles in the future.

The other important announcement from the halls of Telkom is the ability to transfer data to other Telkom users.

This feature will only go live on the evening of 27th November but, once live, customers will be able to send data to other Telkom customers for free.

To transfer data customers can dial *180# and follow the prompts or visit the Telkom App.

These changes are in-line with Icasa’s End-User Subscriber charter it announced earlier this year. Telkom says that while there is still regulatory uncertainty it feels adding these benefits for customers is the right thing to do.
