[/blockquote]Vodafone Uganda has finally joined the UGX 3 per second voice tariff bandwagon and starting today, all its customers will be enjoying a new promotional tariff that will see the telecom company’s subscribers making calls at UGX 3 per second across all networks. According to Vodafone Uganda CEO Allan Richardson, the promotional rates are meant to make Vodafone the telecom service provider of choice, attract more subscribers, and enable the company to remain competitive in the market.
“We have reduced the voice call rate to Ushs3 per second to all local calls/networks to ensure businesses and individuals, especially our subscribers, can easily see the value they are getting from Vodafone and also give our potential customers more impetus to choose us,” said Mr Richardson. Vodafone recently registered its 100,000th customer, seven months since the telecommunications services provider launched in the Ugandan market in February 2015 and also upgraded its voice and data network with the introduction of both 4G and 3G data services in Wakiso, Entebbe, and Kampala.
Recently, Vodafone also introduced free WhatsApp and a wide range of mobile devices such as the SsabaSimu (Infocus), as a value-add aimed at empowering customers to do more with its services. The free service and reduction in call rates will enable Vodafone customers to enjoy the festive season without worrying about the costs of calling family, friends and business contacts.
