Etisalat cuts prepaid call rates
Dubai, June 4, 2013
Etisalat, a leading telecom operator in the Middle East and Africa, has introduced reduced daily local calling bundles for its Wasel prepaid subscribers.
The new bundles come in two packages: 10 minutes daily for Dh2 (54 cents) and 30 minutes daily for Dh4 ($1). The first bundle offers 33 per cent discount on the regular rates and is suitable for occasional callers; while the second, which offers 55 per cent reduced prices is suitable to customers whose lifestyle and work requirements demand more frequent and longer local calls, said a statement.
Wasel subscribers can choose and subscribe to their preferred bundle free of charge by dialing *111#. Customers need to subscribe only once, after which their preferred bundle will be automatically renewed upon the first local call of the day.
It added that there will be no charges on days subscribers do not use the local calling facility. - TradeArabia News Service
