In order to meet the needs and expectations of millions of youths on its network, national telecoms operator, Globacom has unveiled Bounce, a special product customized to deliver unparalleled value to the youths and the young-at-heart.
Designed as an exclusive proposition to youths all over the country, Glo Bounce comes as a full package to excite youths and addresses their unique interests as it offers multiple benefits such as special pricing, freebies and promotions, all in one package.
Speaking at the launch of the product in Lagos, Globacom’s GM, Consumer Marketing, Ashutosh Tiwary said that the new product offers many benefits to youth subscribers on the Glo network. Such benefits include special call rates on campuses, free data, free ring back tunes, zero Facebook and unlimited free SMS.
He said the product was developed based on extensive research which zeroed down on the “passion points” of the youth of Nigeria. Their basic needs and their desired benefits were taken into consideration before coming up with the product which has everything for everyone.
Tiwary explained that customers on Bounce can call other Bounce customers at the heavily discounted rate of 5k/sec and send SMS at the low rate of N3 per SMS. Bounce customers also stand to enjoy the Campus Zone rate of 5k/sec to any Glo line and a flat rate of 10k/sec to all other networks.
Other benefits include free data of 30MB on every recharge of N200 and above, one free SMS for every SMS sent by the subscriber, free browsing on Facebook, free ring back tunes for one month and free night calls from 12 am to 5 am for every subscriber who uses a minimum of N30 before midnight.
“Glo Bounce is a special package with unrivalled benefits that takes into consideration the lifestyle needs of the youths and ensures that they get the best from the Glo network. Glo Bounce provides the youths with unlimited opportunities and the right tools to achieve their dreams”, he said.
“Because of the youth target for the product, the campus zone rate of N5k/sec will be available in all tertiary institutions across the country. This is a big opportunity for youths everywhere to interact with their peers on the Glo network and enjoy these unlimited benefits”, he stated.
Tiwary urged Nigerian youths to migrate to Bounce in order to enjoy the superior benefits it offers. He stated that the product is targeted at all existing and new prepaid customers on the Glo network, especially those who are youthful or young-at-heart.
“With Bounce, our target is to create the largest youth community in Nigeria. It is a great platform for the youth to express themselves and reach the heights of their aspiration. With Campus zone, the students will now want to ‘live’ on the campus because they are able to connect with anybody, anywhere on Glo at 5k/sec which is the lowest call rate in Nigeria”, he said.
“We foresee that Glo Bounce will have a transformational impact on the youth of Nigeria and on the way they use their phones and other services and features for far reaching impact”, he added.
