To help extend and encourage Internet usage in all segments of the Nigerian society, Visafone has slashed prices of its data services.
This marks a drive by Visafone to enable affordable access to mobile Internet in Nigeria, coupled with unlimited access plans that the company is introducing in keeping with the nation’s goal of a knowledge society.
This provides a whole new world of Internet access and experience for both existing and new subscribers with high speed broadband internet services via CDMA 1x and 3G EVDO on the Visafone-pioneered EVDO Rev A network.
Mr. R. Balachandran, MD/CEO of Visafone said that this is yet another example of customer and pocket friendly pricing from Visafone. He said “given the superb experience in terms of access, surfing and download speeds that Visafone data subscribers enjoy, this creates irresistible value for data devotees across the spectrum – be they corporate users, traveling businessmen, students, dedicated downloaders or casual browsers and email enthusiasts.”
With the price slash, subscribers can get a 3G USB modem plus 1 month 24/7 unlimited Internet access for N19, 500 and Internet modems for as low as N8, 000.
Other benefits that accrue to subscribers include a range of supplementary and value added services; like Visa Tones, Voice SMS, Share Ur Visa, easy payment via recharge cards and a dedicated 24/7 call centre for data subscribers.
The Internet service covers a wide range of products including; 1x, Mobile Office, Silver EVDO and gold EVDO. It also consists of four time bands, All Time Surfer, Day Surfer, Nite Surfer and Xpress.
It also has in its bouquet 1 day plan, 3 and 7 days plans tailored to meet the needs of subscribers in various categories.
With Visa Mobile Office, subscribers can manage their personal information- emails, calendars and contacts from a mobile device using EVDO or 1x as the service bearer. Coupled with some excellent and attractive CDMA smartphones, this is the businessman’s and manager’s productivity tool.
Visa 1x allows subscribers browse the internet anytime, anywhere within the Visafone coverage area with speeds of up to 153 kbps on shared basis, on the CDMA 1x technology. This provides an excellent level of experience for normal Internet and email use and reasonable downloads; and is especially useful for traveling managers and businessmen.
The silver EVDO and Gold EVDO packages give subscribers consistent and very high download speed up to 150 kbps and 300kbps respectively. For those wanting superfast access and looking at considerable downloads at high speed, this is the way to go.
