- Orange customers to make international calls for as low as Kshs 2 per minute
- Free bonus data for every international calls bundle purchase
- Offer runs up until December 15, 2013
Orange has launched special international calls rate bundles that will see Orange customers make voice calls for as low as Kshs 2 per minute to the United States of America, Canada, China, India and the United Kingdom. The same rate will also apply for the United Kingdom’s fixed network.
The international call bundles offer also comes with free bonus data on the bundle purchased. The offer will give Orange pre-paid customers across the country increased talk time with family, friends and business partners at affordable rates.
Company CEO, Mickael Ghossein, says the company is committed to delivering even better rates for its customers, allowing them to save on cost, talk more for less and also access the Internet more affordably.
“We are constantly tailoring our offers with our customers in mind and aim to deliver more value and satisfaction to them, as evidenced by this call rate offer that is the lowest in the market,” says Ghossein.
To activate the offer, Orange subscribers top up from Kshs 100, they then dial #123#, select option 3 for offers and select option 3 again for international bundles. Each bundle has a 30 day validity period from the date of purchase. Once the bundle is over, the subscriber needs to purchase another bundle as this offer is not renewed automatically. If not, any international call made thereafter will be charged at the existing Pay-As-You-Go rates, which vary from country to country.
In addition, the offer that runs up until December 15, 2013, also comes with free access to Wikipedia and Facebook Zero.
Recently, Orange was rated as having the cheapest prepaid product among the country’s four mobile operators. The announcement follows a study done by Research ICT Africa, commissioned by the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), showed that in the second quarter of 2013, the company’s retail basket stood at KSh 242.00, compared to Kshs 363.60 for Safaricom, Kshs 290.64 for Airtel Kenya and Kshs 313.01 for yuKenya.
