Speaking during the official launch of the RED at the plush Holiday Inn Hotel in Accra, the newly Chief Executive Officer of Vodafone Ghana, Haris Broumidis, revealed that the introduction of RED in Ghana is to help put an end to the hassle and nuisance of carrying multiple SIMs. “We understand how consumers communicate and with its unique combination of benefits, we are confident that consumers will choose RED to satisfy all their communication needs” he stressed.
In addition to numerous benefits, RED customers will also enjoy VIP treatment at the Vodafone call centre and retail shops, free browsing at Vodafone internet cafes and much more.
The new range of weekly and monthly integrated bundles includes four unique plans: ‘RED Life Weekly’ at GHS 5 per week, ‘RED Rush’ at GHS 20 per month, ‘RED Hot’ at GHS 50 per month, and ‘RED Classic’ at GHS 100 per month.
RED is available only on the Vodafone network. In order to subscribe, customers should dial *200# and choose the most suitable RED plan.
