Nigeria: Globacom Offers 40 Percent Discount on Calls to Other Networks

National telecom operator, Globacom, has re-launched its dynamic tariff plan, Glo Flexi, to give subscribers on the Glo network a discount of up to 40 per cent on calls made to other networks, in addition to the existing discount of up to 99 per cent on Glo-to-Glo calls.

The benefit is the key feature in the Glo Flexi Reloaded tariff plan which was re-launched on Wednesday in Lagos. In August, last year, Glo had launched the first dynamic tariff plan in Nigeria, offering up to 99 per cent discount on calls within the Glo network.

Speaking at the re-launch of the tariff plan, Globacom's Head of Marketing, Adeniyi Olukoya, said the new Glo Flexi Reloaded plan is an amazing package that offers the biggest discounts to Glo subscribers as they can talk for as low as 1kobo per second on the network. Subscribers on the Glo Flexi plan can also enjoy up to 200 per cent bonus on recharges made on their phones.

He said that Glo Flexi was pioneered and now re-engineered in line with Globacom's dynamic approach to introducing products and services which empower and give the biggest benefits to its subscribers.

"Described as the next big thing since we pioneered the Per Second Billing (PSB) platform so many years ago, we have reloaded Glo Flexi to bring unmatched benefits to our customers by making it possible for subscribers to enjoy massive available discounts, no matter their location or the telecom network that they call," he said.

Olukoya explained that Glo Flexi Reloaded is available to all prepaid subscribers in all the 36 states of the federation and it offers the biggest discounts on calls to any network in the country. "With up to 99 per cent discounts on Glo-to-Glo calls and up to 40 per cent discount on calls to other networks, there is no doubt that Glo Flexi Reloaded is a tariff plan for discerning telecom subscribers to embrace," he said.

Elaborating on the new tariff plan, Olukoya stated that Glo Flexi Reloaded is a dynamic package that is dependent on the density of traffic on the network at any point in time. The system looks at the network usage behaviour and gives generous discounts, making it possible for subscribers to enjoy discounts ranging from zero to 99 per cent, depending on the time of day and their geographical location.

"In other words, subscribers are guaranteed seamless calls on the Glo network as the massive discounts on offer ensure proper utilisation of network resources," he said. He further emphasized that Glo Flexi Reloaded has no hidden charges, no access fees and requires no deposits, while the discount offered is applicable on a per second basis throughout the duration of the call.
