How to Buy Orange Kenya Unlimited Data Bundles

Updated on 29th Sep, 2016

The orange XCELL Bundles are no longer limited. This is what you get...
  • XCELL Daily 400MB for Ksh 50
  • XCELL Weekly 2GB for Ksh 249
  • XCELL Weekly 15GB for Ksh. 990
  • XCELL Monthly 6GB for Ksh 990
  • XCELL Monthly 30GB for Ksh 2,990

Since I learnt that you can use your phone as a modem, I have been using Orange unlimited data bundles. Compared to Airtel and Safaricom, Orange is way much cheaper and convenient. Orange Kenya offers 3 options when it comes to unlimited data packages; daily, weekly and monthly. In this post, we look at the steps you take when you want to buy Orange Kenya unlimited data bundles...

  1. Dial #123# to access Orange menu
  2. Reply with 2 for 'Internet Bundles'
  3. Reply with 5 for XCELL Offers
  4. Reply with either 1, 2 or 3 for XCELL daily  at 50 Kshs, XCELL weekly at 249 Kshs or XCELL monthly at 990 Kshs respectively.

It is important to note that for the Daily data bundles, you stay subscribed. What this means is that if you do not need the unlimited data the following day;, you need to unsubscribe. Otherwise, your data bundles are renewed daily as long as there is airtime in your phone.

If you are in the house or can't find a place to buy orange airtime, you can just buy Orange airtime from your Mpesa account.

Now tether your phone to your laptop and browse away! Lovely day.


  1. Thank you so much Orange Kenya for your affordable offers. You keep Kenya updated 24/7 due to your affordable offers.Your the best I knw

  2. Thanks for being cheaper on communacations.

  3. Unlimited is no longer available, very cony company

  4. They are not actually the unlimited as they used to

  5. There's nothing as such as 'unlimited', Orange just scrapped the unlimited data bundle policy without prior notice to their customers! Now does the speed carry in the in the new policy when it's no longer unlimited? A communication company with no communication to customers! Bure kaabisaaah!! !

    1. They should have communicated, but I prefer these excel offers to their unlimited bundles

  6. How can you scrap an offer without notify its customers,style up

  7. I was being noticed by the local Orange shop long time before they change they even told me to change the modem I used to use to a new one. They told me that the unlimited data will no longer be there. I think the company noticed that their customers are using more than expected but the xcell offers are still the best

    1. I agree Tusmo. The Xcell offers are even better than their unlimited bundles if you ask me. The speed is constant and I'm yet to exhaust my weekly allocation.
