Vodafone Fiji has slashed Prepay call rates by about 44% for three months. This move is attributed to the stiff competition that prevails in the Fiji mobile market.

Peak rates for Vodafone “on-net” calls have been dropped from 27 cents a unit to 15 cents a unit or 30 cents a minute in comparison to 54 cents previously. Off peak rates have been slashed from 18 cents a unit to 12 cents a unit or 24 cents a minute. SMS charges have been dropped by 50 per cent to 10 cents per txt compared to 20 cents earlier.

According to Vodafone, this is the most competitive rates offered by any mobile company and clearly sets the benchmark for the other mobile operators.

“We have heard many claims and counter claims on who offers the best mobile rates in Fiji. We strongly believe that actions speak louder then words,” said Aslam Khan, Vodafone Fiji managing director.

“So far we have been watching how the market would evolve under competition. Time is now opportune for us to announce another unbeatable offer to our loyal customers”, Khan added

“We already offer the best in mobile phone technology with the launch of our third generation (3.5G) network. We are the only mobile network operator to offer video calling and wireless mobile broadband.” “Our post pay rates remain the most competitive in the market while the uptake of our $0 rental plan has surpassed all expectations,” Khan further said.
