Glo Introduces “New Infinito” No Conditions Tariff PlanPosted on Sunday, April 17th, 2011 at 6:36 PM
Glo has introduced what they consider “the best value offer in the country’s telecom industry”. Under the new tariff, called New Infinito, Glo subscribers now pay only 25 kobo per second for calls made to any network in Nigeria.
This 25kobo, unlike other similar packages in the market does not have any rental, hidden charges, or conditions attached to it.
The 25 kobo per second charge is a flat rate which applies for all local calls irrespective of which network is being called or time of day or which part of the country the call is originating from.
New Infinito also allows subscribers to call one Special Number at only 2 kobo per second. Interestingly, no daily or monthly rental is charged to enjoy the very cheap rate. The subscriber, however, has an option of registering 5 Glo numbers which he can call at 18 kobo per second. Again, registration is free and there is no rental charge.
In addition to the amazing tariffs, Glo is also offering up to 20% bonus on recharges made by subscribers. N500 recharge attracts a 10% bonus credit, while N1000 recharge will give the customer 15% bonus air time. On the other hand, N5,000 recharge gives a 20% bonus credit to the customer.
Again, Glo New Infinito offers free night calls from 12 midnight to 5 a.m. Subscribers are expected to have used up to N200 air time in the previous week to qualify to make free night calls for the next 7 days.
Globacom’s Group Chief Operating Officer, Mohamed Jameel, said the new tariff package was designed to offer subscribers real value for their money and shows Glo is best value provider in the market.
“We are offering a new tariff plan that gives the customer MAXIMUM VALUE. You are charged 25 kobo right from the first second to the last second. Competing tariffs either charge monthly daily rentals or charge higher for the first 60 seconds and drop the rates for subsequent seconds. When you do the calculations properly and add the rental payment or consider the charge for the first 60 seconds, you will realize such tariffs are indeed not as attractive as they are made to look.
“But with the new Glo offer, the subscriber gets a truthful and easy-to-understand payment plan. For instance, while the Glo subscriber pays N15 for first minute of call made within and outside the network, other networks charge between N24 and N30 for calls within the network and between N30 and N36 for calls going outside the network,” Jameel noted.
The Glo GCOO explained that even where other networks drop their tariff from the second minute, the rental or first minute high charge robs off any savings the customer may have made. “This can be illustrated with a 3-minute or 5-minute call on the Glo network for which the subscriber will pay N45 or N75 respectively. The same durations of call on other networks will be charged at between N60 and N104 and between N90 and N174 respectively depending on the operator. Glo is, therefore, by far the most affordable network.” Jameel affirmed.
