Etisalat extends 1 kobo tariff

Etisalat has announced the extension of Talkzone, its discount tariff offer, to 14 more states in Nigeria, thus bringing the number of states enjoying the discount tariff to 30.

Talkzone offers flexible discounts on calls to any network in Nigeria at different times and in different locations. Subscribers get up to 98% discount on calls made on Etisalat lines, enabling them to make calls for as low as 1 kobo per second and up to 20% discount on calls made to other networks.

The tariff was first introduced in October 2010 in five states of the North east, and later extended to other regions in February and May 2012. The states are: Abia, Adamawa, Borno, Ebonyi, Ekiti, Enugu, Gombe, Kano, Osun, Taraba, Yobe . Sokoto, Kebbi,  Zamfara,  Kogi, Bauchi and Katsina. Others are Jigawa, Niger, Kwara, Oyo, Ondo, Delta, Bayelsa, Plateau, Benue, Cross River, Akwa-Ibom, Anambra and Imo states.

Etislat’s Chief Commercial Officer, Wael Ammar said: “This is about giving the Etisalat subscriber value for money. With calls as low as 1 kobo per second, which is the cheapest discount on any network, our subscribers can do more talking and in turn, achieve more in business or pleasure each day. We first introduced the tariff in the North east to gauge subscriber acceptance then gradually spread to other regions. We have now extended the service to 30 states of the country to ensure that all our customers benefit and talk for as long as they want because with Etisalat you talk much more,” he said.
