[Update] More Charges on Prepaid Recharge/Reloads – By All Operators
Telecos are set to charge more on prepaid recharge or reloads.
Ufone have comes up maintenance charges applicable from 1st July, 2011. These charges are apart from government taxes and services charges already in place.
Dear Customer, To further exceed your expectations, a maintenance charge of 1.1% will be applicable on every recharge from 1st July 2011 along with government taxes.
Market leader, Mobilink have their version calling it operational fees.
1% operational fee will be applicable on all recharge through jazz load (applicable from July 1st, 2011)
While Telenor calls it Admin fee.
Dear subscriber, from 4th July, an Admin Fee of 1.5% will be levied on usage for all prepaid connections (talkshawk & djuice)
So far the charges from Telenor are the highest. Warid and Zong might come up with their versions soon. But, one question that remains unanswered is that when we have charges in place for helpline, CSR and other services, what justifies these maintenance/operation/admin charges? PTA, any comments?
Zong also gets in with same charges as Telenor.
Dear Customers, in order to further improve our services, all loading/recharge will be subject to 1.5% Operational Charge from 1st July 2011 (Govt taxes apply)
Now only Warid remains to announce their version.
Warid also joins the bandwagon, charges 1.5% maintenance charges.
Dear Customers, a maintenance charge of 1.5% will be applicable on every recharge from 25th Jul 2011 along with existing Government taxes.
