DIGICEL BVI INTRODUCES GROUNDBREAKING NEW FLAT RATE CALLING PLAN
Friday, 23 October 2009 – Road Town, Tortola: In a groundbreaking move that is certain to bring more real benefits to cell phone customers in the British Virgin Islands, Digicel today announced the launch of a new FLAT RATE CROSS NETWORK CALLING PLAN that allows prepaid subscribers to call ANY NUMBER, ANYTIME in the BVI at the unbeatable rate of 17 cents per minute.
Effective today, Friday October 23rd, subscribers using a Digicel prepaid phone will pay substantially less when making calls to any other provider in the BVI. By comparison, this represents an up to 50% reduction in off net rates or rates to call other networks.
Digicel CEO Alan Bates stated: “Since our launch in BVI almost a year ago, Digicel has constantly introduced new calling plans, such as Free Weekends, Free International, Unlimited Voice and Data and the Caribbean Plan, to cater to the needs of residents of this territory. Today, we are delighted to bring you yet another revolutionary initiative that will underline Digicel’s commitment to ensuring that you, the customer, further benefit from telecoms liberalization.”
Bates said everyone can benefit from this new value added plan by simply topping up $20 or more every month on their prepaid phone. He said the new rate of 17 cents per minute will be automatically applied and remain in effect for the next 30 days. After 30 days, subscribers must top up another $20 or more to reactivate the plan and continue to enjoy Bigger, Better savings from The Bigger, Better Network.
