TelOne has today unveiled the Wifi Home and Away service as well as Pre-Paid Voice Bundles to the public after 2 weeks of trials by staff. Wifi Home and Away is the official name for the Wifi Offload previously shared. This is a development that is coming as part of the National Broadband project, which is bringing up-to-date capabilities on the TelOne network to give more to our clients.
Wifi Home and Away is a capability that enables our home broadband customers to use their home credentials to access service at any of our more than 200 wifi hot spots countrywide, making the TelOne home broadband mobile. The service will be further strengthened as we are set to increase our hotspots to over 600 by year end. Customers should log on to the TelOne self Service Portal to register.
Under the National Broadband Project, TelOne clients are being migrated to pre-paid voice. At least 70 exchanges around the country have already been migrated. Pre-paid Voice Bundles have seen our voice tariffs going down by as much as 80%. With the voice bundles, on-net calls have gone down from 5 cents to less than 1 cent per minute and mobile calls down from 16 cents to 4 cents per minute therefore making our pre-paid voice service more attractive. This tariff is only applicable to clients registered and using the pre-paid voice bundle.
Prepaid Voice means that clients should now recharge their phones before they make a call using prepaid recharge vouchers and recharging is done by simply dialling 216 and following the 3 three easy steps through the interactive voice response facility.
