Orange launches SoHo offering

16 October 2013, 19:29

Nairobi - Intergrated telecommunications services provider, Orange, has launched Home Talk, a wireless fixed voice service targeted at households and Small Office Home Office (SoHo) to customers in the country.

Officials said the pre-paid service will also allow users to enjoy high voice quality via a fixed numbering plan.

Orange Kenya CEO, Mickael Ghossein, also announced that Orange customers currently on its Telkom Fixed line (PSTN) service may move with their current landline numbers to this new service, in the final phase of the Home Talk roll out. Moreover, a customer may also purchase a new number or even retrieve a number that they had had previously.

"We are constantly tailoring our products and solutions with the customer in mind and aim to deliver more value, flexibility and satisfaction to our existing customers as well as present a sound and exciting proposition that will attract new customers," added Ghossein.

Home Talk will be provided via a plug and play desk top phone at a one-time device cost of KSh 4 500, exclusive of 16 percent value-added tax. The service will be guided by regulatory compliance on the provision of a fixed voice service, linked to a geographical numbering plan that would  allow a user to know the origin of a call.

Customers on Home Talk will purchase monthly bundles, with 30-day validity periods, enabling them enjoy Orange mobile rates at KSh 2 for on-net calls and KSh 3 off-net calls. Moreover, the Home Talk customer will get ten hours of free talk time to three preferred Orange mobile numbers and five hours of free talk time to all numbers on Telkom Fixed and Orange Wireless within the Home Talk bundle. Additional services are voice mail, missed call alert, airtime transfer and SMSs.
