More favorable data roaming prices in Telenor
Initial 5kB at RSD5.9
April 06, 2011 – The initial charging interval for data roaming for all Telenor subscribers is now 5kB instead of 100kB as before, and costs RSD5.9 for all roaming zones. Subsequent traffic is rounded by 100kB.
This change will provide significant cost reduction for all subscribers who often use the Internet on a handset in short intervals while in roaming, for services such as e-mail synchronisation and checking.
“We wish to protect customers, particularly those with models with more advanced functionalities, since their handsets often make data sessions that they are not even aware of. This frequently happens if they have applications for weather forecast, time, navigation, etc,” says Žarko Radovanov, a roaming expert in Telenor.
Telenor roaming is based on the “One zone, one country, one price” system, and Telenor subscribers always pay the same roaming price, regardless of the network they use.
To calculate their costs, all subscribers need to do is check which zone the country they are visiting is in, since Telenor roaming prices are valid for all networks in one country.
Telenor roaming is divided in four zones. Zone 1 covers the neighbouring countries and Greece, Zone 2 other European countries, except Russia, Zone 3 Russia, Asia (except the Arabian Peninsula) and North America, and Zone 4 Africa, Arabian Peninsula, Central and South America, and Australia.
