ZAMTEL has called on Zambians to take interest in supporting local companies to enhance economic growth through job creation and
Company acting chief officer Sydney Mupeta said this yesterday at the launch of ‘Chi-Coin Chabeba’, an on-online offer which will now allow customers to make calls across networks at affordable rates from as low as K1.
“Zambians should take interest in supporting local companies because the money that is spent on the local products and services remains in the country.
“This money will also help in developing the economy through job creation and building of infrastructure and other social amenities,” Mr Mupeta said.
This is contained in a statement issued by Zamtel chief marketing officer Lho-Zindaaba Sakala.
Mr Mupeta said the ‘Chi-Coin Chabeba’ offer falls under the umbrella of the all networks permanent tariff, and comes with increased minutes and bundles for subscribers.
Mr Mupeta said he is excited about the Chabeba offer because it is the answer to the cry of many Zambians who have always advocated lowering the cost of communication.
“As Zamtel, we are extremely excited at the launch of Chabeba offer. A lot of Zambians have complained that the cost of communication is extremely high in this country.
“We heard the cry and responded by first turning the all networks promotion into a permanent tariff in June this year,” he said.
He said this tariff plan has enhanced Zamtel’s customer base, which is now getting closer to 2 million subscribers as at 27th July, 2017.
Mr Mupeta said benefits in the Chabeba offer include data bundles, voice minutes and some night calling on selected bundles, making it the best offer on the market.
