Telkom Business has slashed the price of its mobile Closed User Groups (CUGs) value added service from R149 to R99 today (30 October 2012).
According to Telkom, the service offers free, unlimited calls on the Telkom Mobile Network.
To promote the service, Telkom is also giving new customers that opt for its new 24 month CUG contract the service for free for the first three months of the contract.
Telkom explained that the service allows customers to identify users within their organisations to form part of the CUG. The users in this group are then able to make free, unlimited voice calls to all the users in the CUG.
The Telkom Business CUG also offers free calls to one landline number on contracts. This enables employees to make mobile calls to the office landline free of charge, Telkom said.
The CUG service can be offered to between five and 20,000 users within the group.
A Telkom Business CUG can be managed via an online self-care portal where business administrators can add and delete members independently. The administrator can also set up hierarchies and split billing limits free of charge.
Telkom added that CUG also allows better management of monthly spend as it lets administrators fix a monthly spend limit for each user in the group. The users can also create a pool of frequently called contacts to better manage connectivity costs.
The CUG offering is a value added service available on the range of 24 month mobile contracts on offer from Telkom Business. The CUG service can be added or removed from the contract at any point over the 24 months.
