Globacom on Tuesday launched a new promotion, Free Tomorrow, which offers its subscribers 15 days of free calls, SMS and data every month.
Giving details of the offers at the launch ceremony, Globacom’s Manager, Devices and Partnership, Odafe Akerejola, said Free Tomorrow checks how much airtime a subscriber spends in a day for calls, SMS and internet browsing, and then credits the subscriber the next day with the same value of the previous day’s usage for free.
“For instance, if a Globacom subscriber uses N500 credit in a day on calls, SMS and data, Globacom will give him back N500 credit the very next day. It is like going to a first class restaurant to have a sumptuous meal and being served the full value and quantity of food the next day, free of charge” he explained. Odafe Akerejola said the value offered to subscribers in the promo is unequalled by any other offer in the 14 years history of telecoms in the country. “The only precursor of this magnitude we could recall was the Per Second Billing which Globacom pioneered“, he said.
Free Tomorrow is like giving the subscriber free phone usage for 15 days every month, he explained. According to him, since there is an average of 30 days in a month, Free Tomorrow gives Glo subscribers the privilege to make calls, browse the internet and send SMS for free 15 days in a month. He noted that, with the new offer, Globacom had addressed the challenges people face trying to cope with the financial demands of making calls, sending text messages or browsing the internet for learning, business or social purposes.
“The uniqueness of Free Tomorrow is that the free credit can be used anyhow the subscriber wishes for calls to any network or for data. The subscriber can also use the bonus credit to call friends, family and business associates in any five of the most frequently called countries by Nigerians including Unites States of America, China, India, Canada and land lines in the United Kingdom“, he added.
Odafe Akerejola also stated that the Free Tomorrow offer is for prepaid subscribers, and that subscribers can enjoy the fantastic benefits by dialing *300# to subscribe at zero cost.
On the likely huge traffic that the two promos are expected to add to the network, David Maji, Globacom’s Retail and Consumer Sales Chief, disclosed in his welcome remarks at the event that the quality and capacity of the network had been enhanced to accommodate this.
He added that Globacom would continue to invest huge resources in infrastructure, people and technology towards developing and maintaining a communications technology that is second to none in Africa.
