The second placed mobile telecom operator in Nigeria, Globacom has debuted a new call plan tagged: the Glo Berekete tariff plan for its new and existing subscribers. Glo Berekete call plan rewards subscribers with call and data bonuses upon each recharge of N100 and above.

In recent weeks, the major telecom operators have been rejiging the values of their products in a move to outsmart each other. To this, it would have been surprising not to see Globacom, the aclaimed grandmaster of data, join in the spree. The full details of this exciting call plan are as follows.

Eligibility – The clauses

Now, this new product isn’t a promotional — Glo has unequivocally stated that its Berekete plan is a tariff plan and not an temporary promo. This plan as was identified above isn’t restricted for only new subscribers but for both new and existing users. However, there is a restriction on how the airtime could be expended.

Calls made from the main account balance are charged at 36k/sec while calls made from the voice bonus accounts are charged at a rate of 77k/sec.

It might still go the way of the Yakata plan

By any measure, the new Berekete tariff plan is a value-packed one and by virtue of this, it would surely see its way towards popularity.

However, would it stand the sands of time? An erstwhile call plan which was named Glo Yakata survived just few months after garnering popularity. Its name was changed to Glo new yakata then to Glo Yakata ultra and its value couldn’t survive the rejig as well. What was left behind after this was a tariff plan striped of its then glittering value, leaving a suggestion that it was merely a coy meant to attract subscribers.

Whether or not this latest addition would be suchlike is yet to be known.
