Omnitel has introduced a roaming service called "Eurozona", which will reduce call rates for Omnitel subscribers roaming within Europe. Starting from October 1st, Omnitel subscribers travelling to European countries will pay almost half the previous tariff for incoming calls --- with rates from 1.60Lt.
Giedrius Makauskas, head of Omnitel's Business Customers Division, said, "Increasing call traffic with European countries shows that an increasing number of our subscribers are travelling to different places in Europe. Furthermore, with Lithuania's accession to the European Union and development of tourism, business and other kinds of relations, contacts will undoubtedly expand, and our subscribers will have to travel abroad more and more.
"Thus with regard to changes on the market and our customer needs we will offer a new service providing an opportunity for Omnitel subscribers to talk at much lower rates while abroad."
The Eurozona service will not just be available in the EU, but also in other European countries. Incoming calls on LMT and EMT networks for Omnitel subscribers while in Latvia and Estonia are already free of charge.
