India’s largest private telecom company Reliance Infocomm has announced special tariff structure for its prepaid fixed wireless phone (FWP) subscribers in the metropolitan cities offering savings of up to 33% with effect from today.
Reliance FWP subscribers can now enjoy the benefit of increased pulse rate of 90 seconds, as compared to the old 60 second-pulse, for making local calls to non-Reliance mobiles. As a result, the new effective rate per minute works out to just 73 paise, down 33% from the old rate of Rs1.10.
Calls from Reliance FWP to all Reliance phones are already free under various prepaid schemes.
The company has also introduced a special reduced tariff for calls from FWP to fixed lines between Mumbai and Delhi. The new rate is Rs1.90 with an increased pulse rate of 60 seconds as against the old rate of Rs1.10 with a 30-second pulse. The new rate per minute works out to Rs.1.90, down from the erstwhile Rs2.20
S.P. Shukla, President – Wireless Products and Services, Reliance Infocomm, pointed out that “Reliance FWP stands out in the marketplace and the new tariffs would be of immense benefit to frequent callers in particular.”
