Netia introduces new tariff plans
Warsaw, Poland - October 1, 2001 - Netia Holdings SA (NASDAQ: NTIA, WSE: NET), Poland's largest alternative fixed-line telecommunications services provider, today announced its new tariff packages for analog and ISDN lines which will be effective as of October 1, 2001.
Clients using analog lines will be offered three calling plans:
- "Relaxed" with the monthly fee of PLZ 19 net of VAT,
- "Practical" with the monthly fee of PLZ 30 net of VAT,
- "Chatty" with the monthly fee of PLZ 40 net of VAT.
Clients using ISDN lines will be given a choice between two tariff plans:
- "Versatile" with the monthly fee of PLZ 46 net of VAT and
- "Professional" with the monthly fee of PLZ 700 net of VAT.
The main differences between the packages relate to the monthly fee and charges for local calls. All other charges (DLD, ILD, fixed to mobile and Internet) will be the same in all new tariff plans. Moreover, all charges except local and with Internet will be billed on a per-minute basis.
Starting October 1, 2001, Netia will only offer its new customers these new tariff packages. Existing Netia customers will have a choice of either keeping their previously chosen tariff plans (Blue, Green or promotional) or switching to one of the newly-offered packages. (Note: Further details of the tariff plans are available on request).
