If you have been trying to send your Index number through another line and the results are still not coming back, it is most probably because the SMS lines of the mobile provider you are using is congested. To have your results faster, you need to try a provider like Equitel. With Equitel users can check the 2018 KCPE results by sending an¬†SMS with the candidate‚Äôs Index Number to 20076. Each SMS is charged at Ksh 25. I have not sent any SMSes to check anyone’s results so I don’t know whether this is the standard price people have to pay to get their results back via SMS.
In other news, there are other services that are now available in partnership with Equitel that includes a handset device and a new music download service called Bonyeza.
Equitel has introduced two new handset device brands to the market dubbed Kasmarta and Smarta plus from Itel. The Kasmarta device is a simple feature phone with a retail price of Ksh 1,499 whereas Smarta plus is a smart phone which retails at Ksh 6,999. Customers interested in buying the phones can visit any Equity Bank branch and purchase their phone of choice either at full price or have the option of paying in small installments via Simu Loan. Kasmarta is available via Simu loan at Ksh 299 per month, while Smarta plus is priced at Ksh 1,399 per month.
In addition, Equitel has rolled out a music download service called Bonyeza, enabling all Equitel users to download their favorite songs on their phone by dialing *699#. The service will be available for a premium rate of Ksh10 per download.
Equitel customers can still verify or check the validity of their driving licenses by sending an SMS with the word DL followed by a space, then their ID Number to 22846 and 22847 or check their KPLC bill by sending their KPLC account number via SMS to 95551, for postpaid customers.
