Telecel has announced a new data, voice and text package for its Telecel Go pre-paid subscribers. The offering which is known as MegaBoost is a combo bundle with various benefits.
Telecel Zimbabwe Head of Marketing, Mr. Christopher Rubatika, said the introduction of the MegaBoost package is Telecel’s response to the demand for more affordable mobile services for both voice and in particular data.
“MegaBoost, as the name suggests, is our all-inclusive package which gives our pre-paid customers a much needed boost in terms of making mobile services like data, voice, text and social media access more affordable. MegaBoost is a response to increasing customer requests for affordable mobile services.”
“Telecel has already created a reputation in the market for offering affordable services and for us, MegaBoost promotion is an example of one of our core corporate beliefs which is anchored on offering best value for money through quality affordable services and products,” he said.
“The popular $1 denomination, for example, will give Telecel customers on the MegaBoost package 30MB for WhatsApp, 50MB data to surf however one likes, 15 minutes of telecel-to-telecel voice calls, 4 minutes of calls to other local networks, and 15 texts all valid for 24 hours. On the high end, $10 will provide unlimited WhatsApp, 1Gig of data, 150 minutes of telecel-to-telecel calls, another 25 minutes to call other local networks and 300 SMS all valid for a full month” Mr Rubatika added.
MegaBoost package will give Whatsapp, data, voice calls and text benefits to Telecel customers who have recharged with 50 cents, $1, $2, $5, and $10. Pre-paid customers who recharge for 50 cents all the way up to $10 can purchase the MegaBoost bundle by dialling *480#.
In the recent past there has been a public outcry in Zimbabwe calling on mobile networks to keep voice and data prices more affordable. Telecel’s latest offering is a response to this demand for affordable mobile services. The mobile network is well known for offering bonus airtime or data through offers like the popular Mega Bonus.
The new package is the first of a number of offers that will be introduced by the mobile operator over the next few weeks as it moves into a new phase of development following the sale of the organisation from Vimpelcom late last year.
