Lawrence Spencer-Coker was yesterday unveiled as the new commercial manager of Comium. Briefing the media at their Wilkinson Road headquarters Spencer-Coker said, “we earned that slot [as the leading mobile network in the country] because we have the most subscribers base in the country as we deliver value added services to our numerous subscribers.”
Commenting on the new promotional drive relating to international calls for 30units on Sundays, the new CM stated that it was meant basically to reward their numerous subscribers who made numerous calls that day.
The reduction attracted destinations such as Lebanon, UK, USA, Canada, Nigeria, India, China, Egypt, United Arab Emirate, South Africa and Liberia.
He further went on to state that from Monday to Saturday, it would cost 35 units, while for other destinations it would cost 40 units.
This gesture, he said, “is to reward subscribers to get the most benefit from the leading cellular phone company in the country”, stressing that, “we are not taking part in a price war.”
Comium, he emphasized, “is quite different in style from other mobile companies which has made us leading the pack in the country”.
Mr Spencer-Coker revealed that they were now operating a hot zone “which is also meant to reward our customers”.
The hot zone, he explained, span from Waterloo to beyond and “is basically meant to reward subscribers in these zones for just 5 units per minute for a call”.
That service, he also told the media, ran for 24 hours per day.
Lawrence Spencer-Coker further told journalists that Lunsar and Pujehun were linked up within the last two weeks and that soon other districts and towns would join the Comium family for better services and cheaper rates.
He however assured that, “as a responsible company we are determined to make sure that all the mobile needs of Sierra Leoneans are satisfied.”
