Bharti Airtel ("Airtel"), India's leading telecommunications services provider, today announced new ISO call charges for Bangladesh and Nepal as part of its endeavour to simplify tariffs and add to customer convenience.
The new ISO call charges, which are currently available to Airtel prepaid mobile users, are the most affordable in the industry and eliminate the need for buying additional ISO packs to make calls to Bangladesh and Nepal. Airtel mobile customers can now enjoy the most competitive ISO tariffs with their regular recharge packs and bundles.
Calls to Bangladesh will now be charged at only Rs 2.99/minute (versus Rs. 12/minute earlier) representing a reduction of 75%. Calls to Nepal will now be charged at Rs 7.99/minute (versus Rs 13 earlier) representing a reduction of appx. 40%.
Ajai Puri, COO - Bharti Airtel said: "At Airtel, we strive to offer great value along with a world-class service experience to our customers. These new calling rates will further simplify tariffs and eliminate the need for special ISO packs for making calls to these neighbouring countries. Airtel retail and business customers will benefit immensely from these reduced rates and we are confident this will further drive the consumption of minutes on these routes."
These new ISO rates will provide a major fillip to the growing socio-economic cooperation in the region, benefiting migrant population and businesses alike.
Airtel serves over 280 million mobile customers across the length and breadth of India. It offers exciting prepaid packs that bring the benefit of unlimited calling, large dollops of data and bundled content.
