Telecel Announces Reduction on International Calls’ Weekend Tariffs

February 1, 1999

Following the reductions on international tariffs which took place last January 23rd, Telecel is introducing a new price reduction on calls to EU countries, Switzerland and North America, in all tariff plans.

The new tariff, dedicated to all Telecel Customers, including Vitamina Customers, is applied to the calls placed to the mentioned destinations, during weekends.

Since February 1st, the rate applied to this type of communications is 33 PTE per minute (without VAT) with 30 seconds’ billing periods, meaning that customers pay 16.5 PTE every 30 seconds. In what concerns “Mais” tariff plan Telecel maintains the 30 PTE per minute rate (without VAT), in place since last January 23rd, also with billing periods of 30 seconds – which means 15 PTE per period.

Telecel was pioneer in the introduction of lower weekend tariffs, both for national and international calls. This new reduction strengthens Telecel’s competitive international tariffs, namely when compared with the fixed network’s tariffs. It also renews expectations that, more and more, mobile communications represent an important and consistent alternative to the fixed network, combining mobility with new access facilities – reinforced in Telecel’s case by the quality and diversity of its services.
