TELECOMMUNICATIONS company LIME has announced that effective tomorrow, it will launch the new TALK EZ plan with an unprecedented one rate $2.99 per minute charge for on-net prepaid and international calls to the USA, Canada and UK landlines.
Calls from LIME customers to other local networks have also been dramatically reduced to $6.99 per minute — the lowest rate available in Jamaica.
Garry Sinclair, managing director, revealed the new plan at a press conference in New Kingston today.
Consumers can opt in to the new TALK EZ plan by dialing *123*1# and pressing send.
TALK EZ post-paid customers will pay $1.99 per minute for all on-net calls, which is also a historically low rate for Jamaica.
“This is truly ground-breaking for the entire industry. It is also a seminal moment in our nation’s history with consumers as the biggest winners. LIME Jamaica is leading the charge in making voice calls cost significantly less,” Sinclair highlighted.
“TALK EZ’s one-rate charge means that a consumer can call a relative in Clarendon, Toronto or New York for the same unbelievably low rate of $2.99 per minute,” he continued.
He said LIME understands the economic challenges everyone is facing and wants Jamaicans to be able to stretch their disposable income.
“Communication is no longer a luxury, it’s a necessity and we are proud to lead Jamaica into an era of true telecommunication liberalisation,” Sinclair added.
LIME will also be selling Alcatel phones for $999 a 50% price reduction. Customers who purchase the phone tomorrow (June 15th) will also receive the same amount paid ($999) in top up credit for one-day only (June 15), while stocks last.
The company will also be offering SIM Cards for $300, down from the usual price of $500. LIME stores island-wide will extend business hours tomorrow by opening an hour earlier and closing at 7:00 p.m. for greater customer convenience.
“We thank all our customers who have stayed with us over the years, especially our very loyal post-paid customers. We also thank the Claro customers who came on board a few months ago and extend a special encouragement to those on the other network to come over to the LIME and enjoy real value, superior data experience and extraordinary savings!”
