MEDIA RELEASE

Telecom launches best ever XT prepaid calling rate

Telecom prepaid mobile customers are in for a treat with the launch of the lowest ever prepaid calling rate on XT and free calling weekends.

In the new offer announced today, prepaid customers who sign up to the new Pay as you go plan, will see their standard calling rate on XT drop by 22% to just 69 cents per minute, for minute by minute calling to any network, at any time of day

What’s more, all Telecom customers on XT who top up their phones with $20 or more, will receive free calling to any landline number in New Zealand for the following four weekends.

The new Pay as you go plan and free calling weekends give customers great value for money, in addition to Text Anyone 2500 where customers pay $12 per month, which is as little as half a cent per text, and My Favourites which offers calling to another number as often as you want to for just $6 a month.

Kieren Cooney, Chief Marketing Officer for Telecom Retail, said the new offerings are the latest in an ongoing suite of innovations that Telecom have introduced to offer New Zealander’s the best value in the mobile market.

“Earlier this year we changed the way we did broadband, and now, we’re doing the same with mobile. Staying in touch with family and friends has never been easier,” said Mr Cooney.

Telecom’s new Pay as you go plan launched on April 1 and the free weekend calling offer runs until June 30.

To take advantage of the new Pay as you go plan and its lower calling rate, existing prepaid customers can change plans by calling *333 free from their mobile. For customers new to Telecom, the Pay as you go plan will be pre-loaded onto SIM cards.

The new Pay as you go prepaid plan follows hot on the heels of Telecom’s new range of postpaid plans launched this month to give customers more value and flexibility, with the inclusion of TXTs and data in their monthly plan, all for one fixed monthly fee.
