Ufone Has Come up with a Service Called Hisaab SMS

Telenor recently kicked off a campaign (read war) against all other operators by accusing them of stealing balance from mobile phone users.

Telenor, with its blunt TVCs, claimed that all operators steal balance of their customers while Telenor, according to its TVC, is the only operator with most honest and transparent practices.

In response to Telenor, Ufone has come up with a service that sends customers one SMS a day with daily summary of all the costs and charges that were deducted from the account on the previous day.

This service, called Hisaab SMS, is sent to customers daily with not only call and SMS costs but details of all charges associated with any value added services (that a customer is subscribed to) are also shared.

Here is a sample screen of Hisaab SMS:

Hisaab_SMS

 

Most importantly, Hisaab SMS is free of charge and all Ufone prepaid customers are automatically subscribed to the service. Though they can unsubscribe it by calling helpline.

Unlike Telenor – that just claimed to be the most honest operator – Ufone has shown us the perfect example of what the honesty and transparency is.

We will have to see if Telenor has guts to be transparent enough to its customers by starting a similar service that clearly communicates all the charges that are deducted from customers?

Ufone Becomes First Local Brand to Cross 2 Million Fans on Facebook

Ufone

Ufone has become the first Pakistani brand to cross 2 million fans on Facebook. It is a milestone for the company and the agency as Ufone becomes the first local brand to acquire 2 million fans on Facebook.

The digital presence of Ufone is powered by Strategic Alliancez (SA) – an interactive digital media agency based out of Lahore.

The journey began in July 2012 with 507,000 fans and a stagnant position in the market. Effective digital strategies and out-of-box communication designs from SA enabled Ufone to build and sustain the tradition of leading the digital media front.

Amongst some of the most important achievements in 2013 on social media was Ufone’s 14th August campaign, ‘Not founded on Facebook’. In 5 days, Ufone acquired 18,881 fans with 11 posts, attaining 208,000+ interactions, against a staggering cumulative interaction of 13,000+ from four competitors on the same occasion.

Earlier in 2013, Ufone also launched Uth Pack – Ufone’s lifestyle brand for Pakistani Youth. Within 60 days of its launch, Uth Pack became the fastest growing telecom brand for youth on Facebook. The launch campaign delivered 18 million+ impressions, 164,000+ fans and 28,000+ talkabouts. Its rich media advertising campaign across direct publishers fetched an interaction rate of 41% (industry average being 8.4%).

Not to forget, Mobilink crossed 2 Million mark for its fans on Facebook as well – after Ufone – all thanks to on-going Pakistan Idol Show.

Ufone, Mobilink Increase Balance Inquiry Charges

Untitled-1-copy-600x155

During a latest development in telecom sector, Ufone and Mobilink has announced an increase of 5 paisas for balance inquiries. Zong, Telenor and Warid are likely to follow the move in coming days.

Ufone said that new balance inquiry charges will be applicable from May 25th, while Mobilink hasn’t mentioned any date for new charges yet. We are sure that other operators will announce similar increase in balance inquiry with-in weeks.

After this increase, balance inquiries will be charged at 20 paisas per transaction, excluding taxes – or 24 paisas per balance inquiry including taxes.

It maybe recalled that idea of paid balance inquires was first introduced in July 2009, and all balance inquires – which were previously free – were charged at 10 paisas plus tax.

Later, in April 2012, operators revised this rate and increased balance inquiry charges to 15 paisas plus tax, which are now again increased to 20 paisas per balance inquiry plus taxes.

It is interesting to note here that customers keep on innovating new ways of checking their balance for free, such as, through web portals or through various USSD codes that aren’t charged.
