Safaricom is planning an end to its Platinum subscription plans effective August 30th, 2020.
An alert that has been received by subscribers over the last few days reads, in part, “Dear customer, Platinum Plans will NOT be available from Aug 30th 2020.”
The message goes on to advise subscribers to switch to the company’s All-In-One bundles.
With the launch of a revamped postpaid product, Karibu PostPay, at the start of this year, it became apparent that Platinum’s time was really up. It was only a matter of when, not if. Sure, it still has its fans but it is not hard to see where we are coming from with it and where we are going.
Safaricom is yet to confirm why it is ending Platinum but the writing has been on the wall for a while.
