Berne, 21 January 2008
From 1 March 2008 young people up to the age of 26 will be able to make free calls from their mobiles to the Swisscom mobile network and fixed network - 24 hours a day - thanks to the new young people's subscription NATEL swiss xtra-liberty Plus. The monthly basic fee for this flat-rate subscription is CHF 29, and includes 100 free SMS messages.
This new NATEL swiss xtra-liberty Plus subscription is perfect for all young people who make long and frequent phone calls. The monthly basic fee of CHF 29 covers all calls from a mobile to the Swisscom Mobile network and the Swiss fixed network (does not cover roaming). Calls can also be made free of charge to the M-Budget and Migros mobile networks and to Combox. Calls to the mobile networks of other operators will be charged at CHF 0.50 per minute. A special tone will notify customers that they are being switched to a third-party network. But the new subscription doesn't just offer more freedom in terms of phoning; it also includes 100 SMS messages per month, with any further SMS messages within Switzerland costing just CHF 0.15 per message.
The new subscription signifies a further expansion of Swisscom's successful "xtra" product range aimed at young people. NATEL swiss xtra-liberty Plus will be available from 1 March 2008. Anyone wishing to take advantage of the new subscription and already in possession of a NATEL subscription can sign up from 1 February 2008, simply by texting "xtraplus" to the number 444.
