On demand usage:

On demand usage refers to the use of Internet services without an active Internet pack/bundle

All Customers by default are on off-demand for data/Internet services. That is, a customer cannot access or use internet services when a pack/bundle is exhausted or when a customer does not have an active Internet pack/bundle. This prevents the customer not to use airtime/reload balance without his/her consent.

Good news is that Customers are now given an option to choose to Start on demand usage for Internet services or Stop on-demand usage when on-demand usage is activated from our USSD Menu *147*00#.

If you have not activated or requested to Start using on-demand services for internet services, once your bundle is exhausted your session on internet will be stopped until you buy a new internet bundle. BUT

If you have allowed or accepted to start using on-demand services for internet services then when your bundle is exhausted while using internet service, you will continue to access the Internet services but you will be charged from your normal airtime balance. If you don’t have enough airtime balance then your session will stop until you buy a new Internet pack or recharge your balance.
