Nigeria’s fully integrated telecommunications service provider, Globacom, has announced a new tariff regime that will enable its customers to make calls across all networks in the country at the rate of 11 kobo per second. This means that one minute of call from Glo to all networks will now be at the rate of N6.60k.
The company made the announcement from its head office in Lagos today, stating that it was part of its latest measures to offer subscribers more value for money in this particularly difficult period.
Globacom said subscribers who get on the plan will be able to access the 11 kobo per second tariff after paying a N7 access charge while making the first call of the day. After the N7 access charge, the subscriber is subsequently billed at the rate of 11 kobo per second for every call he or she initiates to any network in Nigeria.
“No access charge is deducted on a day that the customer does not initiate any call,” the company stated.
The telco said the tariff plan is open to all categories of prepaid customers, existing or new. They only need to dial *311# to be automatically migrated to the Glo 11k per second plan.
“The new tariff plan does not affect existing rates for SMS and international calls. In other words, subscribers on the new plan will pay the standard SMS and IDD rate. Subscribers who desire a better IDD rate are required to purchase an IDD Pack which will significantly reduce their spending on international calls,” Glo said.
The company added that the new tariff was a manifestation of its desire to continually delight its customers with innovative products and services at the most competitive rates.
