Mumbai, India, June 10, 2014: Reliance Communications, India’s telecommunications service provider, has launched One India, One Rate Plans, a first-of-its-kind free National Roaming offer for post-paid and pre-paid GSM customers. Under this innovative offer, there will be no difference between Local, STD and Roaming charges and customers will be charged only their Home Plan tariffs, even while roaming anywhere in India.
Gurdeep Singh, Chief Executive Officer, Consumer Business, Reliance Communications Ltd, said, “We are delighted to launch the One India, One Rate Plans in the country, which abolish differentiated tariffs for roaming, STD and local calls in India. When business has no boundaries, then tariffs should also be seamless and customer-friendly—thus, incoming calls while roaming will now be free on the RCOM network.”
“As India’s youngest pan-India GSM operator, we are committed to improving the quality of our customer mix, and the One India, One Rate Plans will help us attract customers in the high-value Corporate and SME roaming segments. RCOM’s One India, One Rate Plans will help us break down the tariff barriers and extend unprecedented benefits to our roaming customers,” Gurdeep Singh added.
Reliance Communications has several path-breaking, industry-defining initiatives to its name, among them the revolutionary 3G@2G Data Offer and the Zero Plan, both of which created new benchmarks in the Indian mobility industry. Combined with the launch of the One India, One Rate Plans, these combine to make up a powerful proposition for the high-value Corporate and SME customer, offering them convenient, affordable and hassle-free connectivity, backed by RCOM’s best-in-class network due to the Company’s robust IP back-haul and 200,000 km of fiber.
With the One India, One Rate Plans, customers will no longer have to worry about using their phone while roaming or making STD calls. Non-Reliance customers can also avail these plans on their existing mobile numbers by porting-into Reliance through attractive MNP offers. For instance, in the Post-Paid One India, One Rate 599 plan, after the free minutes are used up, customers will enjoy a flat outgoing rate of 30p/min for calls to anywhere in the country, while on the One India, One Rate 350 Plan, a flat rate of 40p/min applies after the free minutes are used up. Pre-Paid plan MRPs and rate will vary by Circle.
Reliance Communications’ customers can now enjoy roaming services across the country without worrying about any additional charges for utilizing voice and data services at a roaming location. Under these plans, roaming rates as per the customer’s existing home Circle billing plan will prevail, even when they are roaming in other locations in the country. This unique offer is meant not just for frequent roamers, but also for infrequent roamers who can subscribe to these plans and have peace of mind without having to worry when they roam or make STD calls.
