Bharti Mobinet Ltd and RPG Cellular Services have come out with new schemes aimed at increasing cell phone usage.
According to sources, RPG has introduced a facility — Cell Speak — with which subscribers can make calls to any cellphone in the country for 50 paise a minute. The facility can be chosen on any of the tariff plans.
It is available to all existing and new post-paid subscribers for a monthly fee of Rs 50. With the reduction in STD tariffs and the Cell Speak facility, using a cell phone to make STD calls has become cheaper.
South STD, a service from RPG Cellular subscribers, enables subscribers to make STD calls to the four southern States at no additional deposit.
