Glo mobile slashes call tariffs with ‘Time Band’

GLO Mobile, the mobile arm of the Second National Operator (SNO), Globacom Limited, has slashed call charges on the network by 95 per cent.

A press statement made available to Champion Infotel quoted Globacom’s Marketing Director, Mr. Jagatjit Singh, as saying that subscribers are now to enjoy up to 95 per cent reduction on any call tariffs based on the time of the day when such a call is made.

A new promotion tagged ‘Glo Time Band Savings’ he said, entitles subscribers on the network to discounts of between 10 per cent and 95 per cent for calls made on the Glo network, depending on the time of the day.

“Discount is from the peak rate of the tariff plan,” he said, explaining that calls made between 12 midnight and 5 a.m. will attract 95 per cent discount, between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. will have 40 per cent discount, while calls between 8 a.m. and 12 noon will be at 10 per cent discount.

And between 12 noon and 2 p.m., Singh said, Glo is offering callers 20 per cent discount, while 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. will attract 10 per cent discount.

“Subscribers who call between 10 p.m. and 12 midnight will enjoy a 30 per cent discount,” he said.

Mr. Singh, equally disclosed that the discounts are applicable nationwide, unlike similar products in the market, that limit subscribers to specific zones.

“Glo Time Band Savings is the first such offer in the market. Our subscribers will benefit from it irrespective of wherever they are in Nigeria. You do not have to enjoy the benefit only when you are at a particular place or zone,” Singh explained.

The Glo Time Band Savings which is part of Glo Mobile’s Festive Seasons promotion to usher in the new year will end on January 31, 2009.

The discount offer is open to all existing and new subscribers on prepaid platforms except for the Commercial Telephone Operators (CTO) packages.
