Nigerian operator Globacom has cut international call tariffs by as much as 55 per cent. Globacom said the reduced tariffs come without any subscription fee and cover major destinations such as the UK, France, Italy, Ireland, South Africa, Spain and Saudi Arabia.
Other countries covered by the reduction are Cameroon, Niger, Benin Republic, Togo and Cote d’Ivoire.
“United Kingdom which used to cost between N30 and N130 per minute now cost between N24 and N100 per minute depending on the network the call is landing. Similarly, calls to Spain and Italy have been reduced to N75 and N60 per minute from N90 and N130 respectively,”
The company further said that calls to South Africa will now attract N85 per minute instead of N150, while calls to Saudi Arabia will cost N55 per minute instead of the former N60 per minute.
The tariff for France and Ireland has been reduced to N50 and N40 respectively from N65 and N60, while calls to Cote d’Ivoire, Benin Republic, Cameroon, Togo and Niger will now attract N150 instead of the old N200 per minute tariff.
