Etisalat slashes international call rates
Abu Dhabi, May 9, 2010
Etisalat has slashed the International Direct Dialing (IDD) rates to 50 fils per minute, for landline customers.
Effective from May 10 till August 9, all UAE landline users can call anywhere in the world, anytime, at just 50 fils per minute.
The offer is applicable for all landline users in the UAE, benefiting both, e-Life as well as non- Etisalat landline users, with incredible international calling rates. Users, who do not have an Etisalat landline connection, can also benefit from the reduced rates through the Etisalat Select Service that is offered free of charge; the user only pays for usage.
Available in two customised packages, the promotion offers additional flexibility to the customers to choose the most appropriate package as per their requirements.
First offer: Customers can benefit from the best international calling rates of 50 fils per minute (all day), for one selected country of their choice for a flat fee of Dh20 per month. Customers can call 125 to select their preferred country and enjoy the discounted rates. Rates of all other local and international calls will remain unchanged.
Second offer: Besides reduced call rates of 50 fils per minute for a selected country, subscribers to this offer have an option to pay a connection charge of Dh1 per international call to the selected country, rather than the flat fee of Dh20 per month. Hence, customers in this plan can choose to ‘pay-as-used’, rather than paying a monthly fee of Dh20. Rates of all other local and international calls will remain unchanged.
Customers also have an option to switch from one offer to another, based on their utility.
Subscribers of special IDD tariff plans such as “Super off Peak”, “Favorite Country”, and “Friends & Family” can also benefit from this promotion by subscribing to the above mentioned offers. The IDD tariff plans will be put on hold during the promotion period, and customers would automatically be reverted to their original plans after the promotion.
“This limited period offer will be of great value to all landline subscribers who will now be able to connect with their friends and family worldwide,” said Khalifa Al Shamsi, Etisalat senior vice president – Marketing.-TradeArabia News Service
