Starting November 1, 2010, Esia customers can enjoy all services at a rate of Rp. 1, namely calls Rp. 1/second, SMS Rp. 1/character, and internet Rp. 1/2kB.
“Previously, we have given the most rational SMS tariff of Rp. 1/character. Now everything becomes Rp.1. Anything is one rupiah,” said Erik Meijer, Deputy President Director of PT Bakrie Telecom Tbk.
Erik added that the tariff applied by Esia is a permanent tariff not a promotion, and applies as long as it is a limit. “We are not like other operators who lower their rates at certain hours. With Esia, Rp 1 can be enjoyed at any time,” said Erik.
Especially for voice rates. Erik admitted that Btel had only revised it after lasting about 5 years at a rate of Rp. 50/ minute. “Since I work here –Bakrie Telecom Tbk-, I have never lowered the voice tariff. Now the price of calling with Esia is only Rp. 1/second, valid between Esia and other operators”.
This Rp 1/second voice tariff applies to all GSM operators (local calls) and fellow Esia (local and interlocal using the code 01010). This scheme can be enjoyed by registering via sms, typing GSM to 511. There will be a fee of IDR 3,000/day and IDR 50/SMS.
It should also be noted, the tariff of Rp 1/second is only valid for calls for 10 minutes (accumulated in 1 day). Minutes after that will be charged Rp 5/sec (for calls outside Esia). “This scheme is an option for users. If you rarely make calls to GSM numbers, customers can still use the regular tariff (Rp 800/minute) or the GANAS package,” explained Erik.
Rp 1/second can also be enjoyed for international calls through VOIP 01010 access to 10 countries, namely Brunei, Canada, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, India, Singapore, Thailand, and America. After the tenth minute, it will cost you Rp 599/minute.
