Etisalat rewards customers

08 November 2013, 12:26

Lagos - To commemorate its five years of operations, Etisalat is offering its customers an opportunity to join in the celebrations through a special promotion.

Acting Chief Executive Officer, Matthew Willsher, said the special reward offer called “Etisalat Gem” was part of the company’s initiatives of showing appreciation to customers who have remained royal to the brand over the years.

He said any customer on the network who uses between N10 000 to N30 000 monthly gets an Etisalat dongle with 500MB data monthly for six months and free 10 minutes calls plus 50 short Etisalat to Etisalat SMSs.

Willsher added that customers who used between N50 000 and above, would get free devices ranging from smartphones, N160 000 shopping vouchers, invitations to Etisalat exclusive events, free calls and SMSs on their birthdays, Etisalat High Value Identity cards as well as free VIP tickets to watch world famous soccer side, Barcelona, live at their Nou Camp home ground.

Customers with a minimum balance of N5 000 before traveling will receive calls for free when roaming in select destinations around the world including the  United Kingdom, South Africa, Saudi Arabia and The Netherlands.

Reflecting on the achievements of the company in the past five years, Willsher said that although Etisalat was the last entrant into the Nigerian telecommunication sector, it had revolutionized the sector.

“Many will recall the high cost of communication when we launched. Now, things have changed a great deal. Etisalat has been able to offer competitive products and services to Nigerians which have forced down the cost of keeping in touch with family, friends and business associates,” he said.

He assured customers that the network will continue to improve their experience on the network.

Etisalat launched operation in Nigeria in 2008, and has risen to become Nigeria’s third largest mobile network operator with a subscriber base of 16 million.

The figure represents more than 13 percent of the country’s total subscriber base.
