Telecom introduces new data package

13 September 2017 | Business

In a quest to stand strong in the market, Telecom Namibia has announced new packs offering unlimited calling and internet.

The unlimited value packs are exclusive for Telecom Namibia's new post-paid residential customers and offer unlimited voice calling to the company's fixed and mobile networks and to anywhere in Namibia.

For the first time, fixed-line customers are now able to get unlimited and unrestricted data and unlimited Telecom Namibia voice calls for free. This includes calls to over 360 500 Telecom Namibia's fixed and mobile numbers countrywide.

In addition, customers will also receive at least 300 free minutes per month to make calls to any other mobile networks.

Telecom Namibia unlimited voice calls and data value packs come under four price points starting N$749, offering the best value for money and suitable for the needs of different customers.

Explaining the perks, Isak Ouseb, acting chief commercial officer, said: “If a customer pays up each month for any of the value packs then he or she will also get unlimited data benefits with no fair usage policy (FUP) limit.”

Ouseb said the packs, which are competitively priced by global standards, would open new unlimited voice calling, surfing, streaming and downloading opportunities for customers for a standard monthly cost.

He said the benefit to customers was not only the unlimited internet access and unlimited calls to Telecom's fixed and mobile networks, but there was a lot of savings on voice calls and a predetermined monthly bill.

“Our customers want more affordable voice and data bundles and that is what we are giving them. We are reducing the cost to communicate and making the internet more accessible. They also need freedom to communicate conveniently and cost-effectively,” he said.

“Our latest unlimited packs extend our commitment to affordability to our fixed-line residential customers. We are at the forefront of reducing communication costs and Telecom Namibia has taken another big step to making both the voice calling and internet more accessible,” Ouseb said.
