How would it feel to make free calls with no subscriptions? Great, right?
Well, Telkom Kenya have just introduced special zones known as Telkom free Zones where you can make free Telkom to Telkom calls all day and night at no charge and no subscription.
If you are in any of the listed zones and have an activated Telkom line, then you are automatically allowed  to call other Telkom lines whether the other person is on the free zone or anywhere else in the country, and no airtime will be deducted from your line.
Currently Telkom free zones are found in Kisumu,Siaya,Homabay and parts of south Nyanza. Others are in Eldoret, cherangany, Tarbo, Muranga and Tarbo.
However it will cost you Ksh.3.30 per minute to call other networks from these free zones.
How to check if you're in A Telkom Free Zone.
To know if you are in a Telkom free zone:
  •  Dial *888# on your Telkom Kenya line. 
  • You will receive a screen notification to confirm if you're in one such zones or not, as indicated below:
Telkom free zones

When you initiate a call in a free zone and move to a no free zone with the call undisconected, it will still be counted as a free call. However, if you make a call in a no free zone and move to a free zone, you will still be charged.
The introduction of these free Zones is part of Telkom Kenya's strategy to provide their customers with many options to communicate and do telecommunications transactions on Telkom, as they try to increase their Customer subscriber base.
As at now Telkom Kenya is at third place in terms of market share, after Airtel Kenya and Safaricom remaining the Market leader.
It is also good to note that Telkom has been giving Safaricom a lot of pressure with it's consumer centered products, and at some instances Safaricom have yielded to this pressure like having to introduce the daily Giga bundle after Airtel and Telkom introduced cheap daily 1 GB bundles. Lately Safaricom have also introduced free WhatsApp to most of their daily, weekly and monthly options after Telkom had a success in this, while Airtel unliminet on the other hand gives customers free WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter upon purchase of any unliminet offer.
