Sistema Shyam TeleServices Ltd (SSTL), which nationally operates its telecom services under the MTS brand and has over 10 million wireless customers, has added yet another first to its list. MTS India customers will now be able to call USA, Canada and UK at just Rs. 3.99 per minute. MTS customers can enjoy the reduced rates while calling both mobile and fixed line in USA and Canada and fixed line in UK. The ISD calling rates to these countries have been slashed by as much as 40%.
It is equally significant to note that MTS customers would not be required to commit anything in terms of subscription to special calling packs or making mobile recharges of particular denominations etc. The Rs. 3.99 / minute will be made available as the default calling rate to all MTS India customers across the country. Currently, majority of the competing mobile operators have priced their calling rates to US, Canada and UK at Rs. 6.4 / minute.
MTS India has chosen 15th May, the International Day of Family to launch this special initiative.Starting 15th May 2011, MTS India mobile phone users would be able to avail these slashed rates for a period of one month.
