TSTT lowers pre-paid mobile rates

With immediate effect, new rates will be implemented for TSTT’s Liberty pre-paid mobile service. These new rates, which are much as 65% less than the previous rates, are part of  TSTT’s ongoing strategy to make it more affordable to own and maintain a mobile phone.

“TSTT is committed to finding new ways of giving customers more and more value for money. In this case, pre-paid mobile users account for more than 80% of our mobile customer base and their support is what generated the phenomenal growth we have experienced in the market over the past 3 years” said TSTT CEO Samuel Martin.

TSTT’s pre-paid mobile rates vary during the peak and off peak periods. The peak periods are 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM  from Mondays to Fridays. The off-peak periods are 6:00 PM to 7:00AM - Mondays to Fridays and all day on the weekends.

The new rate for peak periods has been reduced by 20%, from $2.99 to $2.39 per minute. The new rate for off-peak periods has been reduced by 35%, from $1.99 to $1.29 per minute. This off-peak rate will only be applied to the off-peak periods from Mondays to Saturdays in order to facilitate the introduction of a special “Sunday” pre-paid rate of  seventy-five cents ($0.75) per minute.

The rate reduction will not affect the cost of TSTT Liberty Pre-paid cards, which are still available in $30; $75; $100 and $200 denominations. However, for the same price, pre-paid mobile service users will get much more talk-time.
