Glo slashes call rates to 11kobo


To stay above competition, indigenous telecom operator, Globacom, has slashed its Double Free Tomorrow product to 11 kobo as it also launched a new product, Glo Borrow Me Data and reloaded other existing products.
The Head, Usage and Retention, Glo, Mr. Sola Arowogbadamu, emphasised that all the four products offered benefits unmatched in the telecom industry, adding that three of the products, which were repackaged, following their successes and appeal in the market included, ‘Double Free Tomorrow, 11k/s for All, and IDD Packs.
He said that the new product, ‘Glo Borrow Me Data,’ would allow subscribers to borrow data credit of up to 2GB whenever their data bundles are exhausted and they have no airtime balance to recharge their data plan or in cases of unsuccessful subscription bundle activation due to low balance.
He said, “The next offer, Double Free Tomorrow, gives back to the subscriber 200 percent of whatever is spent on calls, SMS or data today to use for free the next day. In the re-loaded offer, Globacom calculates all the value of airtime a subscriber used in a day for internet services, phone calls and SMS, and credits the subscriber’s phone with double this value at the start of the next day. The offer will now be available as default for all new customers activating a Glo line.
“Effectively, this means that subscribers will now receive back, the following day, double the airtime used in a day for calls, internet browsing and SMS.”
Arowogbadamu also announced the introduction of New IDD Packs which he said is the best deal in the country and covers calls made from Nigeria to 30 major international destinations for as low as N6.60 per minute.
According to him, the bundles are designed to match the recharge denominations and include IDD 100, IDD 200, IDD 500 and IDD 1,000. The IDD 100 gives the subscriber 12 minutes of call valid for 3 days, while IDD 200 gives 24 call minutes for 7 days.
