Telkom USSD codes
Telkom is well known for its affordable data bundles and other services including free on net calls at selected parts of the country.

What are USSD codes?
Unstructured Supplementary Service Data(USD) codes, also known as Quick codes, allow mobile phone users perform simple tasks like airtime top up or access specific services like subscribing to a given bundle without having to call customer care of the specific telecommunications provider.
These codes are usually in the form*XXX#, and vary depending on the specific telcos, though some might be the same, like *544# for data. This is not a must, but since we are used to Safaricom, then others also decided to use same codes in performing some actions.
