Telecel Announces Tariff Reduction on National Calls

March 11, 1998

After tariff reductions implemented by competitor, TMN (who announced tariff reductions on 02 March, retroactive to 01 March), TELECEL is announcing a reduction of tariffs on some aspects of national calls, to take effect on 22 March:

Peak minutes of mobile to mobile calls only on regular tariff plans (not on prepaid plans)

Peak minutes on mobile to fixed tariffs on regular tariff plans and Vitamina T and Vitamina R

Off-Peak minutes on mobile to fixed tariffs on Vitamina T and Vitamina R

TELECEL has altered the length of peak hours and off peak hours

No changes have been made to monthly fees on regular plans or to recharge amounts on pre-paid plans

No changes have been made to Vitamina K or Vitamina P

The impact of the tariff reductions and time changes (see table below) are within company expectations. Even with this level of decrease, TELECEL is still charging a slight premium in the marketplace.
