This is the second launch in a week from Vyke, last week they launched My Nigeria Mobile, an innovative solution for the UK/Nigerian market. The My Nigeria Mobile service allows a caller in the UK to call a dedicated mobile phone in Nigeria at significantly reduced call costs. With the purchase of a My Nigeria Mobile starter pack, the recipient of the calls in Nigeria gets a free mobile phone (to receive calls) and the UK customer gets 7-days free calls to the Nigerian mobile phone.
The package acquired from BLS Wireless is priced at £19.99 (including VAT) and is aimed at the Nigerian expatriate community, which is estimated to be more than 150,000 in the UK. Vyke plans to roll out more country specific products, Mohammad Asif, Chief Executive of Vyke, said: “We hope that this will be the first of a number of My Country Mobile products to be launched targeting specific countries around the world with this concept in low priced calls.” Adding “Targeting these communities head-on with products like My Country Mobile is a huge opportunity for Vyke”.[ad name=”Google Text half banner advert “]
