3 Minute Hour Extended

3 Minute Hour Extended

Telecom announced today an extension of its 3 Minute Hour promotion till the end of April next year.

Now extended to 30 April 2007 Telecom 027 prepaid and Go OneBill plan customers can talk for up to 1 hour, but pay for just 3 minutes with Telecom's '3 Minute Hour'.

The 3 Minute Hour applies to calls to Telecom phones within New Zealand during evenings (that's 7pm-7am), weekends and national statutory holidays.

Telecom General Manager of Consumer Marketing Kevin Bowler believes the extension to the 3 Minute Hour to 30 April 2007 will be popular over the Christmas period.

“As holidays approach we’re making it easy for Telecom customers to connect with friends and family in New Zealand wherever they happen to be.”

The 3 Minute hour extension comes hot on the heels of the announcement that users of Telecom’s Mega TXT and Boost Monsta Plan will from 1 January 2007 be able send up to 2000 texts per month on-network for no more than $10 – twice as many texts as previously provided.
