Quicksilver Internet slashes toll call prices

Quicksilver Internet slashes toll call prices with 054

Quicksilver Internet has slashed national and international telephone calling rates by up to 67% with its 054 code-dial service.

The 054 plan gives off-peak rates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is free to join and you only pay for the calls you make.

Using 054 does not affect existing direct dial tolls specials from Telecom or other providers, and subscribers can access the low rates from either their home or business telephone line. There is no need to change telephone numbers, and as 054 calls are made from a regular telephone, unlike some other providers, there is no need to pay for a computer compatible phone. Savings are made simply by entering 054 before dialling.

While Quicksilver's 054 rates were already very competitive, 054 customers will now make even bigger savings on their national and international toll calls. Sample prices below are per minute rates:

National NZ

7c

Singapore

9c

NZ Mobile

42c

Western Samoa

59c

S. Korea

6.5c

Fiji

45c

S. Korea Mob

13c

Indonesia

29c

UK

8c

Sri Lanka

45c

Australia

8c

Thailand

35c

China

6.5c

Philippines

54c

Taiwan

8c

Pakistan

59c

Malaysia

19c

South Africa

15c

Hong Kong

8c

India

25c

All rates already include GST. For a full list of rates, please see www.054.co.nz

Code-dial tolls services give the consumer greater freedom and choice. By dialling the 054 code before calling, users can now access great rates. These type of code-dial services are already gaining great popularity overseas, and this trend is growing in NZ as consumers become more savvy about the cost benefits of using an alternate toll provider.

Signing up to Quicksilver's new service is easy and can be done online at www.054.co.nz or via the free telephone number 0800 GET 054. Call records and costs can also be monitored online on the 054 site. Quicksilver provides free telephone and email customer support.
