Nigeria: Glo Launches Five New Pocket-Friendly Tariffs

Globacom has introduced five new subscriber-friendly tariff plans targeted at its prepaid customers. 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.

Elaborating on the new tariff plans, Globacom's Coordinator, Marketing, Adeniyi Olukoya, said that the new tariffs will deliver more value to subscribers on the network.

"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 5k/sec and international calls for as low as 15k/ sec", he said.

Olukoya added 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/sec and calls to other networks will be at the rate of 18k/sec.

"To enjoy the fantastic 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/sec. Under this plan, the customers will enjoy the best data usage, unrivalled customer experience and flat calling rates to all networks," he said.

The new G-Bam tariff allows subscribers to call five loved ones at 5k/sec and call all networks at 18k/sec. Subscribers will also get 5M B 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 said.

He also stated that the new Infinito tariff gives subscribers the benefit of keeping in touch with 10 loved ones on the Glo network at just 10k/sec. Subscribers on the tariff can also call other Glo customers at 20k/sec and other networks at the rate of 30k/sec.

He explained further that with the new Glo Gista tariff, subscribers can make on-net calls at the rate of 15k/sec while calls to other networks will be at the rate of 30k/sec after the 1st minute of the day at 40k/sec.

According to him, for all these new plans coming from the stables of Globacom, customers will enjoy international calls to the United States, United Kingdom,(fixed), Canada , China and India at 15k/sec after the 1st minute at 25k/sec. In addition, they will enjoy 35 hours of free night calls every week.

Olukoya said that the new plans are introduced in order to offer more choices and deliver more value to new and existing Glo subscribers 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 wider choices now available and freely connect with their family and friends without being worried about high tariffs and huge data costs", Olukoya he said.
