Airtel Kenya has come a long way in boosting it’s network coverage across the country, taking on market leader Safaricom and in some aspects, even coming out on top. The telco prides itself in being the ‘Smartphone Network’ and it has pretty affordable data packages to back that tagline.

The carrier also has devices like Pocket WiFi and 4G Routers that come with different packages from its prepaid offers.


So you have one of these devices. How do you check for the bundle balance? In this post we show you a quick way to do that. You will need to have another Airtel line on a mobile phone to check for the bundle balance on your mifi. You will also need to know your MiFi account number. This should be in the paperwork you bought the mifi with.

How to check your Airtel WiFi Data Balance

  • Dial *400# on any Airtel prepaid line
  • Select your device, in this case Airtel PocketWiFi
  • Select Check Balance
  • Select Enter your PocketWiFi number
  • You should receive a text message with your current Airtel package and the balance, and the expiry date where applicable


This is a pretty simple procedure and can be done using any Airtel line, not necessarily your own. So if you don’t have an Airtel line, ask your friend to do this for you real quick.

Airtel continues to push innovation and keeps presenting its customers with offers that are sure set to attract more and more persons that feel aggrieved by Safaricom’s seemingly bullish attitude when it comes to pricing.
