Globacom subscribers will this season enjoy 50 percent rebate on all calls made to selected international destinations in an International Direct Dialing (IDD) promo launched by national telecom carrier, Globacom.
Call destinations which include all lines in the United States, Canada, India and China as well as fixed lines in the United Kingdom will have discounts in call rates.
Globacom’s Head of Glo Gateway, Mr. Steve Stretch, who disclosed this in a press statement in Lagos, explained that 50 percent discount is available on the IDD pack which attracts a rental charge of N500 with N500 bundled airtime for 30 days’ validity period. Instead of paying 20kobo per second, the subscriber is charged only 10 kobo per second. Customers have to dial *170*25# to enjoy this amazing offer.
He urged Globacom subscribers to take advantage of the IDD Promotion to connect and talk at a cost-effective rate with their friends and relations in the countries covered by the promo during this festive season.
The IDD promo complements the Glo Unlimited Roaming promo which allows Glo subscribers who travel outside the country to receive calls on their lines free for 15 days.
Stretch said the offer comes with a subscription fee of N2,500 for a validity period of 15 days.
Roaming subscribers will also enjoy up to 60 minutes of outgoing calls at a competitive rate of N100 per minute. The offer includes 15 free SMS and ability to browse the internet at 15 kobo per kilobyte.
He explained that the roaming plan is currently available in 27 countries including the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, Netherland, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, India, Spain, Switzerland, Canada, Brazil and Cameroon, adding that “there are plans to extend it to more destinations.”
Also last week, Globacom launched Glo Overload and Glo Allawee promos to empower its customers to enjoy pleasurable experiences on the network.
Glo Overload allows Glo subscribers across Nigeria to instantly get 200 percent bonus airtime every time they recharge with N200 or more after dialing *200# to opt in, 200% bonus data on purchase of data plans of N2,000 or more and an opportunity to be 100 times richer every time they recharge with N200 or more.
On the other hand, Glo Allawee gives new subscribers a whopping N18,000 naira worth of free airtime.
