Globacom has slashed the tariff on BlackBerry plans by half in an unprecedented move aimed at liberalising access to the modern tool for social and business networking.
Announcing the new tariff in Lagos on Wednesday, the company in a press statement, said that in addition to the drastic tariff drop, there is also considerable increase in the data allowance for both BlackBerry 10 plans and the generic BlackBerry plans.
The statement signed by Adeniyi Olukoya, Globacom’s Coordinator, Marketing, disclosed that the Absolute Month platform which hitherto was N2,800 with 3GB data, now goes for N1, 000 with 3GB data.
The Absolute Week plan goes for N500 with 700MB and the COMONTH and COWEEK plans go for N899 and N400 with data allowance of 3GB and 700MB respectively.
“Globacom is the first network to introduce Blackberry service in Nigeria and we have continued to maintain the lead by offering subscribers the best and most pocket friendly BlackBerry rates. Glo always has exciting offers for both existing and potential customers. We are offering these new tariffs to encourage Nigerians to use data more frequently. This will make life more abundant for our subscribers,” the statement added.
According to the company, the new BlackBerry subscription tariffs are for both old and new customers.
“Nigerians will recall that Globacom’s entrance into the nation’s telecommunications brought about dynamic changes. We have a commitment to continue to delight Nigerians and make telephone services not only available but also affordable. The drastic reduction in the subscription tariffs for all BlackBerry plans is one of such. The beauty of this is that the package comes with increased data allowance so that our numerous customers will have unlimited benefits while on the network,” the company said.
