Ho, May 23, GNA - Ghana Telecom's (GT) latest product "GT Eazyfone", a pre-paid service, would be made accessible to customers indebted to the company, whiles they negotiate payment terms to clear old debts. By that strategy, the company hoped to rake in over 70 billion cedis owed it by its customers, which would go a long way to improve revenue generation and planning for better service delivery.
Mr Joseph Wireko, General Manager, Marketing and Communication department announced this package in Ho on Monday at the launching of the GT Eazyfone, fashioned for its domestic consumers and GT Maxi Prepaid Telephony for telecommunication centre operators in the municipality.
Answering questions at the launch, Mr Wireko said under the prepaid systems, the company would absorb the 15 per cent VAT, which was charged to customers under the post service billing system. He said customers would however continue to pay the line rental charge of 50,000 cedis under the pre-paid service regime because the company would not be able to operate without it.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency, Mr Wireko said the post-service billing regime would continue to operate alongside the prepaid systems because of its convenience to corporate entities, which have largely shown the capacity and goodwill towards paying their bills when due. The general impression, which emerged among the audience, was one of enthusiasm towards the new products, judging from the convenience, control, choice and accessibility they seemed to offer to potential customers.
