Telestet B Free "Afternoon"
Offers Lowest P.M. Rate
23 November 1999
ATHENS -- STET Hellas Telecommunications S.A.
today announced the launch of "Afternoon," a new wireless
prepaid tariff from B Free by Telestet that offers the lowest afternoon rates
in the Greek market.
Afternoon offers prepaid customers the opportunity to call more, and pay
less per call, in the afternoon. For example, a one-minute call between 2
p.m. and 6 p.m. period is less than one-third the cost of a regular B Free
prepaid call during the same time.
The Afternoon rate is 1.1 drachmas per second from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., and
2.9 drachmas per second for calls during the rest of the day. All Afternoon
calls are charged in 30-second units and incur a 30-drachma set-up charge.
The new tariff is in line with the company's strategy of appealing to
different customer segment's needs and the trend in the Greek market
toward prepaid service. Last month, Stet Hellas announced that by the end
of September 56 percent of its customers were using prepaid service.
B Free is the only wireless prepaid service to offer tariff plans based on
lifestyle needs. The first lifestyle tariff was "Morning Talk,"
launched last month offering the lowest morning prepaid rate.
Stet Hellas Telecommunications S.A. is at the forefront of the mobile
communications industry in Europe. To its growing base of more than 1
million customers in Greece, the company's Telestet brand stands for
innovative services and the latest in communications technology. The
company's shareholders include Stet Mobile Holdings NV, Bell Atlantic
(NYSE: BEL) and the Interamerican Group, and its stock is publicly
traded on the NASDAQ (STHLY) and Amsterdam (STHLS) exchanges.
