Lagos. February 15, 2013: Globacom has introduced five new subscriber-friendly tariff plans targeted at the prepaid customers of the second national operator.
Globacom says the new plans, Hi-Flyer and TalkFree have been introduced to address the needs of high value voice and data subscribers while the new G-Bam, new Infinito and new Gista which already exist, have been repackaged to offer more value to customers.
Commenting on the tariff plans, Adeniyi Olukoya, Globacom’s Coordinator, Marketing, says that the new tariffs would deliver more value to subscribers on the network, while adding that “whether they spend more on calls or data, these new tariff plans will deliver more value as subscribers can make calls within the network for as low as 5 k per second and international calls for as low as 15k per second.”
Olukoya explains that subscribers on the TalkFree plan will enjoy 150 free minutes and 150 free SMS monthly while Glo-to-Glo calls on the plan will be at 15k per second and calls to other networks will be at the rate of 18k per second. To enjoy the TalkFree rates subscribers will pay a monthly subscription fee of N1,000 only.
“With the Hi-Flyer plan, customers who subscribe to any data plan from 200MB and above will enjoy calls to all networks at 18k per second. Under this plan, the customers will enjoy the best data usage, unrivalled customer experience and flat calling rates to all networks”, he adds.
He adds that the new G-Bam tariff plan allows subscribers to call five loved ones at 5k per second and call all networks at 18k per second.
“ Subscribers will also get 5MB free data daily to check their mails, browse Facebook, tweet and do other things on the internet after paying a subscription fee of N5 per day. This rate is the best in the market as staying in touch with loved ones has never been cheaper”, Olukoya says.
Globacom also says the new Infinito tariff gives subscribers the benefit of keeping in touch with 10 loved ones on the Glo network at just 10k per second. Subscribers on the tariff can also call other Glo customers at 20k per second and other networks at the rate of 30k per second.
With the new Glo Gista tariff, subscribers can make on-net calls at the rate of 15k per second while calls to other networks will be at the rate of 30k per second after the first minute of the day at 40k per second.
“For all these new plans coming from the stables of Globacom, customers will enjoy international calls to the USA, UK (fixed), Canada, China and India at 15k per second after the first minute at 25k per second. In addition, they will enjoy 35 hours of free night calls every week,” the telecoms company says.
Olukoya says that the new plans were introduced by Glo to offer more choices and deliver more value to new and existing subscribers on the network of the Second National Operator who register for these special tariffs on the prepaid platform.
“With these new pocket-friendly rates, we expect our subscribers to take advantage of the widest choices now available and freely connect with their families and friends without being worried about high tariffs and huge data costs,” he says.
