Vodafone Fiji has announced that reduction in its mobile charges will come into effect from 31st December – a day earlier than the reduction in VAT comes into effect.
Whilst, the reduction in VAT by Government is 6 percent, Vodafone has been able to pass on a bigger reduction of between 6-9 percenmt on some of its services.
Vodafone prepaid customers who account for more than 90 percent of its total 750,000 customer base, will now pay 9 percent less for their call charges which is a further 3 percent reduction on top of the 6 percent reduction in VAT announced by Government.
Vodafone Fiji CEO Pradeep Lal says the reduction means Vodafone now offers the lowest prepaid calling rates in the country on a 30 seconds per unit basis.
For other services, rates have reduced anywhere between 6-9 percent.
