We are all aware of the saying that Information is king and the difference between individuals is the information they have. The first time a friend of mine mentioned it to me, that there are telecoms services that allows people to talk to each other for FREE 24/7
right here in 9ja, I simply told him that it was not possible. I knew that there were facilities in UK that allows people to make free calls during weekends but the concept of FREE CALLS & SMS
every blessed every day right here in Nigeria seems impossible (I was actually limited by the info I had by that time).
Two weeks before this friend gave me this info, I entered a bus from CMS to Berger (I was going home after working hours) in which the lady sitting beside me called a guy and they virtually “gisted” for more than 2 hours
till she got down in Ojota (They actually continued their gist because she didn’t cut the call as she got down from the bus). They virtually discussed official matters to their personal love life (the kind of talk that happens between two people with something in common. I know you know what I mean). It is not my habit to eavesdrop, but I actually had no choice (By the way I enjoyed their talk).
After she got down, other passengers in the bus brought up the topic about how very rich she must be to be able call for more than 2 hours at a stretch (So I wasn’t the only person listening to their gist after all). Someone actually suggested that she must be a banker by the way of her corporate attire. To me, I felt she must be filthy rich to make such lengthy call. How many bankers can spend about #3,456 (@48k/sec) at a go, to call some guy just to discuss not very pressing/important issues. We never knew that she was just enjoying a facility which most people don’t know about.
After my friend gave me the info about 24/7 free calls
, I was forced to make my own research even though it came from a tested and proven source. I found out that this facility has been around for some time now in Nigeria but it had been restricted to high profile individuals and corporate organizations. With the info I could get, it been provided on Starcomms Network and Glo Network. The ones on Starcomms are called Virtual Private Networks (Starcomms VPN) while the ones on Glo are called Closed User Group (CUG) services. It comes of the side of postpaid lines.
Out of all this VPN or Closed User Group services the one I prefer most, which I am now currently on (with my ‘Baby Girl’ and Mum) is that provided by PWS Technologies Ltd
. They call theirs Mo’ Talk™ CUG Plan
(Pronounced ‘More Talk’). It is on a Glo backbone which means I am able to talk for FREE anywhere I am in the country
(I tend to travel a lot and with it I don’t worry about network coverage). Also apart from been able to make FREE CALLS & SMS within your group and to other subscribers nationwide, you get to call other networks at half the normal tariff (25k/sec to glo and 37k/sec to MTN, Zain & Etisalate). Another good thing about their service is that you can migrate your exiting Glo number if you don’t want a new line. This way you get to keep your phone numbers as individuals and still be able to enjoy the FREE CALLS & SMS
facility (I didn’t have a Glo line so I opted to getting a new Mo’Talk ™ CUG line). You can also get serially numbered mobile numbers for your group/organization if you choose. This service offers flexibility depending on your preferences. For more info about their Mo’Talk™ CUG Plan
, check out www.mo-talk.com
. You can also call this numbers 08076092001, 08076092000 or 08076267778.
With their service, you can now enjoy the ability to be able to call friends, family, colleges, business associates and staff members for FREE 24hrs a day, 7 days a week
. With a monthly rental as low as #1,500 you no longer need to be on a high profile side to be able to do this. People, families and organizations are now calling for free. Are you?
I personally recommend the Mo’Talk™ CUG Plan
for the following categories of people:
Individuals that want to REDUCE the distance between them and their loved ones, friends and co-workers ensuring that they talk for FREE as much as they want despite the distance.
Organizations that need to communicate constantly with their field workers, marketers and operations personnel’s e.g. ISPs, Event Managers, Logistic Companies, Oil and Gas Workers, Courier Companies, Insurance, Banks, Churches, NGOs, Transport Workers and other small businesses.
Business owners that wants to keep in touch with their office or shop FREE 24hrs a day
from anywhere in the country.
Project Managers that want their project team members to collaborate on projects that span multiple locations e.g. keeping track of progress on multiple projects.
Organizations that wants FREE communication between multiple branches located anywhere in the country.
I sincerely hope you find this info very useful. I would like to have your feedback, comments or questions. Have a wonderful day ahead.
