Hard-hitting international calling rates in time for Xmas

Skinny Mobile launches hard-hitting international calling rates in time for Christmas

Skinny Mobile have announced the launch of their new slimmed down international calling rates – and are encouraging all their customers both current and future to get calling their friends and family overseas.

CEO Paul Taylor says, “Kiwis want value – and we have rates from 6c per minute when you’re on an active $4 a week combo.

“Just another bit of ridiculous value from New Zealand’s most ‘Liked’ telco.”*

“We’re heroing our amazing rates to China, India and Hong Kong (6c when you’re on an active $4 a week combo), we think those are the real attention grabbers.

“That said, we have killer rates to Australia, the UK, USA and Canada too, as we know our customers want great calling rates to these destinations too.

“We have many different ways of staying in touch with friends and family who are overseas, but none better than picking up a phone and hearing your loved one’s voice.”

According to Statistics New Zealand there are 800k Kiwis living abroad – and all those people have friends and family who’d like to have a bit of natter with them over the phone, so Skinny is making this possible – on prepaid.

Paul Taylor, “People are tired of the complexity and hidden costs of calling cards, so we’re paring things back and in true Skinny style, keeping things simple.”

*Assessed from number of ‘likes’ on Skinny’s Facebook page, Skinny Mobile has 109,000 ‘likes’ as of 26th November 2012.
