Telenor now made Internet on the phone easy and free for everybody
September 08, 2010 – Internet access from feature phones is only one click away as of now thanks to Telenor Klik service. It is designed for both postpaid and prepaid customers and free of charge till end of year. Telenor Klik is based on a unique concept offered only by Telenor with the aim of making Internet easily accessible to as many users in Serbia as possible.
The service also includes Telenor’s Opera Mini browser, enabling the search of web contents as on a PC, and a Telenor Communicator, unifying access to e-mail services, social networks, and chats at one place (Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Hotmail, G-Mail, Yahoo, G-Talk, and MSN).
After sending an SMS with the word “Klik” to 9000, the user gets an sms with a link to the service description and activation. Another two messages with links for downloading Opera Mini and Telenor Communicator applications are the next two steps.
The user then gets 150 MB of full-speed Internet a month, or several times the average consumption in Serbia. Telenor’s intelligent network management is able to measure the amount of traffic used and ensure that the customer still gets the service after the initial 150 MB are spent. If this amount of traffic is used up earlier, a slower data transfer is still available without any extra costs.
After a four-month promo period, the service will cost a fixed RSD290 per month, with taxes.
“Telenor developed this service based on the findings of an extensive 2009 national survey, which clearly showed that higher Internet usage will have a beneficial effect on the socio-economic growth of the country, and will be in line with the global demand to see access to Internet as a basic human right,” says Kjell-Morten Johnsen, Telenor Serbia CEO.
The potential of the Internet in Serbia has not been used to its full extent, and this unique service will help make it available to the broadest public.
