What Is Celtel Doing?

ok folks, i dont know if there's another page discussing this but it disturbs m ea lot whats happening with Celtel?

1. they've cut our 12 free sms to 6 only!

2. they've got the highest rates around now- on-net calls is no more 70k/sec

3. what are they doing with the "happy hour" tarriffs available on other networks

4. celtel is suppose to have the "me2u' feature available in other nations they operate but they are not saying anything yet here

5. the only competition celtel seems to rub shoulders with now is mtel, glo and mtn is not in their class at the moment

i'm real pissed with Celtel, really bad!

even MTN that is no customer-friendly, is forming XtraCool and the likes, why is Celtel then totally lagging behind, no for real, i'm abandoning my line till they wake up and do something,

wat you guys thinking or is it just me,

The 70k per kb is on glo prepaid.

Glo postpaid offers unlimited GPRS like MTN for 12k per month too.

No wonder u do the math!! Glo browses with 70k per KB I wonder how thats less expensive than Celtel.

The calculations u did earlier, try it again with 70k pkb as constant and dont tell me the result cos I know!

You download over 320MB daily with a GPRS connection in naija? Stop deceiving yourself!

Anyway, most people usually chat with Agile messenger or IM+, and a chat message is usually far less than 1KB. ergo, you can chat for 30 mins and pay less than 10 naira

MTN and glo offer unlimited GPRS for =N=12,000 per month. If you calculate the celtel rate at 10k per kb, you would have exhaust =N=12,000 by downloading only 120MB which is less than half of what I download daily. To download only one Mp3 song might even cost you nothing less than =N=500.

For your information, free gprs is definitely not responsible for the not responding problem of celtel. Most people i call dont even use or know what gprs is. Some even use nokia 3310 that doesn't have gprs capabilities. Besides, this not responding wahala was occuring back in the days when gprs wasn't even available on former econet & vmobile. Obviously, there's something else responsible for this because other networks dont have this problem.

If they make a silly mistake and dare charge me a kobo, I'll just burn their SIM card immediately cos these celtel clowns don't offer me any reason to be on their network apart from the free GPRS. Once they yank GPRS off, I'm gone for good.

I wonder why I call celtel numbers and it keeps saying "not responding" when I know the guys phone is on and working?

Fake network!!

It's you guys that I wonder about because I actually don't rely on free GPRS. I have glo, MTN and Multilinks that I use for browsing regularly.

I'm also about to subscribe to MTN extravalue (postpaid) that offers you unlimited GPRS at =N=12,000 per month.

I just wonder how regular some guys that completely depend on celtel GPRS will be on this forum once they start charging today.

Celtel has been a disappointment since they bought Vmobile because they seem not to understand business strategy. I loved them when they used to be Vmobile, but since they were bought over by those celtel clowns, things have gotten so bad with them loosing customers that Vmobile struggled to maintain. Besides, free gprs is ending soon. so long to the celtel diehards, i wonder what you guys will do without free gprs now.

I do download close to 200mb daily because i'm currently trying to update my music library via limewire. I download a minimum of 20 mp3's daily on both my pc and laptop simultaneously with 2 celtel lines. Whenever there's a downturn in speed with internet settings, i use the wap settings with the aid of proxy settings.

200MB indeed !

lol u dey run e - open market ?

anyways, Hayprof, the only way to get about browsing on celtel with ur current line has to be celtel.

your sim's inability is from their systems and no amount of config settings sent to ur phone will change that.

does ur phone indicate avaiability of GPRS service ?

It's better you enjoy the free browsing while it lasts cos by the time they (celtel) finish upgrading, they'll definitely start charging.
