Asiacell presents its subscribers with the opportunity to choose between different billing methods.

Asiacell – the largest private Iraqi company and the first mobile telecommunications company to provide coverage for all of Iraq – announced the launch of its new service offer, which utilizes the payment-per-second billing system as an optional alternative to the per-minute billing system. Asiacell subscribers who wish to adopt this new payment method will be able to enjoy the most economic mobile rates in Iraq, wherein 2 cents per 10 seconds will be charged for phone calls made to other Asiacell subscribers, and 3 cents per 10 seconds charged for calls made by Asiacell subscribers to other networks. International phone calls will also follow the per-second billing offer starting from the first minute at no extra cost. Asiacell subscribers are free to choose whether to remain subscribed to the payment per-minute system or to switch to the new per-second system.

Furthermore, Asiacell gives its subscribers the ability to choose among the company’s various offers based on their differing needs by utilizing a simple and easy-to-follow mechanism, where subscribers who wish to switch their billing system need only to dial the number 200, which will cost them a transfer charge of USD 1.

Commenting on this step, Dr. Diar Ahmed, CEO of Asiacell, said: “We are proud that Asiacell is at the forefront of the national Iraqi companies providing advanced services at reasonable and competitive prices; an achievement which comes as a direct result of our deep understanding of the needs of the Iraqi market. This understanding springs from Asiacell’s dedication to answering the needs of the Iraqi people in various parts of the country in order to spread easy means of communication. In the tradition of our company, our new offer was launched based on world-class practices and international standards.”

He added: “We at Asiacell have taken great care in developing the company’s infrastructure, as we regularly direct our investments to the modernization of the technologies and techniques that we adopt, and hire the best Iraqi capabilities and experts in order to successfully and effectively provide comprehensive services that meet the demands of the Iraqi market. Our efforts reflect our vision and commitment to our nationalistic role in contributing to rebuilding Iraq.”

It is worth mentioning that an agreement with the relevant Iraqi government entities was established over two months ago to enable the launch of this new service in the first week of 2009. The service’s characteristics include enabling Asiacell subscribers to carry out phone calls even at a minimum credit of 2 cents, wherein other offers require a minimum available credit of 8 cents. Asiacell’s offer is directed at all of its subscribers, and particularly those who do not make long phone calls, thus enabling them to tangibly reduce their costs.

Asiacell’s various offers meet the different needs of its subscribers, and include the post-paid billing offer which charges 6 cents per minute, and another offer that allows subscribers to choose 5 numbers to call at a special billing rate, in addition to many other high quality offers and services.
