In a bid to ease communication challenges of international travellers into the country, Starcomms Plc has unveiled a phone rental service at Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos.
The service which covers both voice and data comes with customer-pocket friendly tariff. To benefit from this service, customers will have to pay a sum of N500 for a phone for voice only and N1, 000 for both voice and data.
It is service on-the-go and the registration process is simple and takes only few minutes to complete.
Mr. Logan Pather, the Chief Executive Officer of Starcomms said it is another service innovation to make travellers stay in touch with friends, family and their business partners around the world as seamlessly as possible.
“This service is also available for high-end phones like the Motor Q’s with capacity to handle both voice and data services. However, for customers to enjoy voice or data service on any of these phones, customers will buy a minimum of N1000 airtime for voice and 1G of internet data service at the on-going rate.’’
On arrival, new subscribers who want to lease a phone, rather than buy, for the duration of their stay in the country can get it from the Starcomms kiosk available at the arrival hall of the international airport in Lagos.
All that the customer needs to do is to complete a registration form with their personal details such as names, address, duration of stay, purpose of visit and other relevant information that may be required.
However, on departure, customer will be required to signs a return form and turn in the phone at the same point.
Pather pointed out that Starcomms as a listening network will also provide customer care services to proffer solutions on number to call and other information challenges that may arise at the point of service.
This service will not be limited to customers in Lagos alone as Starcomms has plans in place to replicate it in other international airports across the nation.
Pather further re-iterated that Starcomms would continue to come up with top rated innovations that offer value for money in order to bring an equal satisfaction to all categories of customers on its network.
