Smile Communications Nigeria Limited, a leading broadband service provider, made a historic breakthrough in the Nigerian telecoms market with the introduction of the lowest call tariffs that allows its customers to make calls at 8kobo per second to any network from within and outside the country at the same rate, using SmileVoice App.
The SmileVoice allows thousands of Nigerians to enjoy seamless, SuperClear voice and video calls to their loved ones to and from anywhere in the world.
Unveiling the arrival of the new app to the market at Golfview Hotel & Suites, GRA Ikeja at the weekend, Managing Director of Smile Nigeria, Godfrey Efeurhobo said that the world-first free mobile app gives customers the opportunity to have access to SuperClear voice calls over 4G LTE network, without the need for a VoLTE handset.
“I’m proud to announce the lowest call rate in Nigeria, using the very latest 4G LTE technology. Yes Nigeria! It is true. You can make calls at 8kobo per second to any network in Nigeria. You can also make and receive calls at the same rate from any country in the world,” Efeurhobo said, adding: “That is the Smile innovation! That is the Smile promise!”
The app is structured to function exactly like SIM card in a mobile phone. “Having the SmileVoice app on your mobile is like having a second SIM card in your phoned. Customers can use their data plan to make SuperClear voice, video calls and send SMSs to any number locally and internationally. There is no need for the recipient to also have SmileVoice.”
Interestingly, the new app has come to wipe the era of “Roaming Bill Shock” that hitherto makes it impossible for Nigerians to make calls with their local numbers abroad. What that means is that registered subscribers on the choice network can now make undisrupted calls anywhere in the world at the unprecedented rate of about N5 per minute.
