Just weeks after the successful launch of MyPlan for postpaid users, LIME has announced a special package for select groups of prepaid customers.
The Teacher/Student Value Plan (TSV) allows educators and pupils alike the opportunity to input a unique PIN and get talk, text and data for just $30 a month, or a dollar a day.
The package includes 50MB of data,100 on-net minutes to any local LIME number (landline and mobile) and 1,000 local and regional Anywhere SMS to any LIME or Digicel number within LIME territories across the region, including the Bahamas and Trinidad & Tobago.
The plan is targeted at high-school or post-secondary school students and teachers, who can sign up at any LIME store with appropriate identification. LIME teams will also be visiting schools and universities islandwide to bring staff and student bodies up to speed with Saint Lucia’s fastest network and the best rates to talk and text.
“Cost is a major factor for young people, especially students,” explains Laurencia cadette, LIME Head of Marketing & Communications. “We recognise that students comprise an important part of our market and we wanted to cater for them, but we also know that teachers are hard-working and deserve to have affordable options available to them.”
The plan also builds on the popular Anywhere SMS product, which gives prepaid mobile customers 1,000 text messages for just $10, or $0.01 per text message to any LIME or Digicel number in Saint Lucia or the LIME Caribbean.
In addition to the plan itself, LIME also announced that persons signing up for TSV in-store or at any of the company’s outdoor sales events would qualify to buy the Nokia Asha 201 feature phone for just $199. This attractive data-capable QWERTY phone has been highly sought-after since it was first sold as part of the One Rate launch earlier this year.
