Starcomms Launches Phone Rental Service at International Airport

In a bid to ease communication challenges of international travelers into the country, Starcomms Plc, Nigeria’s leading Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) operator in the telecommunication industry, has launched a phone rental service at the international airport in Lagos

The service which covers both voice and data comes with customer-pocket friendly tariff. To benefit from this service, customer will have to pay a sum of N500 for a phone for voice only and N1, 000 for both voice and data. It is service on-the-go and the registration process is simple and it takes only few minutes to complete.

Mr. Logan Pather, the Chief Executive Officer of the company disclosed this in Lagos, saying this is another service innovation to make travelers stay in touch with friends, family and their business partners around the world as seamlessly as possible.

He said, “This service is also available for high end phones like the Motor Q’s with capacity to handle both voice and data services. However, for customer to enjoy voice or data service on any of these phones, customer will buy a minimum of N1000 airtime for voice and 1G of internet data service at the ongoing rate.’’

On arrival, new subscribers who want to lease a phone, rather than buy, for the duration of their stay in the country can get it from the Starcomms kiosk available at the arrival hall of the international airport in Lagos. All that the customer needs to do is to complete a registration form with their personal details such as names, address, duration of stay, purpose of visit and other relevant information that may be required.

However, on departure, customer will be required to signs a return form and turn in the phone at the same point.

Pather pointed out that Starcomms as a listening network will also provide customer care services to proffer solutions on number to call and other information challenges that may arise at the point of service. This service will not be limited to customers in Lagos alone as Starcomms has plans in place to replicate it in other international airports across the nation. He further re-iterated that Starcomms would continue to come up with top rated innovations that offer value for money in order to bring an equal satisfaction to all categories of customers on its network.
