Which network offers the best free WhatsApp in Kenya?

Which network overs the best free WhatsApp
All the three top telecommunications providers in Kenya offer free WhatsApp whenever their subscribers purchase data bundles, but which of these three offer the best free WhatsApp?
Well, Telkom Kenya was the first to announce the free WhatsApp when they were relaunching from Orange Kenya. It was then followed by Airtel, and later, when they could not overlook it further, Safaricom came on board.
When you purchase any Telkom freedom bundles, you get free WhatsApp up to 50 mb daily  at full speeds valid for the duration of the data purchased.
 If you don't exhaust the free bundles within the bundle validity period, then you will loose all the free WhatsApp bundles. Initially you were supposed to have a minimum of 1 Mb data in order to use the free offer, but now you can access free WhatsApp even with  zero balance as long as you are within the validity period.
In case you exhaust the daily allocation you can purchase a WhatsApp daily bundle for Ksh. 5.
Safaricom has free WhatsApp in most of their data bundles including all platinum plans. It only excludes daily 7Mb and daily 15 MBS.
The free WhatsApp has up to a maximum of 300 Mb for the data validity period. This might look like alot of free data as compared to Telkoms 50 Mb.However, it has some serious limitations. You can't use the free data to make voice or video calls. Once your purchased data is exhausted, the free WhatsApp speeds will be reduced.
Now comes the leader of the free WhatsApp, Airtel.
Unlike the other two Airtel gives you unlimited free WhatsApp for the entire validity period of any Airtel Amazing data bundle you purchase.
For other networks, the free data only kicks in when you have exhausted the main data bundle. This is not so for Airtel. You enjoy free WhatsApp right from the purchase of a data bundle and gives you the opportunity to use your purchased data for other purposes.
The goodness with Airtel free WhatsApp doesn't end there. We would have expected that with the above advantages, then Airtel would have capped the free version to a snail pace. This is quite the opposite.
Airtel allows you enjoy free WhatsApp at full speeds, whether you still have the purchased data or you have exhausted them, provided you're still within the validity period of the bundle.
So if you are looking for a free WhatsApp that is absolutely free, go for Airtel.
According to a report by the star, about 12 million Kenyans access WhatsApp per month, making it the most uses social media platform.  such statistics could have been the main reason why telecommunications providers in Kenya introduced the free WhatsApp in order to woo customers to their network, with Telkom Kenya and Airtel struggling to keep up with Safaricom which has maintained a strong lead.
