A statement issued in Accra on Thursday said Airtel, which has the lowest pay-as-you-go rates in the country, was hopeful that the reduced rates would drive data usage on its network.
Mr Oare Ojeikere, Marketing Director at Airtel Ghana, explained that the offer, added to Airtel Ghana’s already low rates, was meant to encourage current customers to do more with Airtel’s internet and to encourage new users on the network.
Mr Ojeikere said: “What we want to offer our heavy users and young people in schools engaged in research is to get more for less on our 3.75G network. Customers can now spend even more time on their favourite websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Google at rates as low as 0.006Gp.”
He said that the reduced rates would be especially beneficial to young people and students who often wanted to download large music and video files.
Customers can subscribe by simply dialing *125# to experience life in real time with Airtel’s amazing and affordable Internet services, according to officials.
