Chippie roaming rates now more affordable

PHILIPSBURG–Travelling abroad just became more affordable for Chippie mobile customers thanks to a reduction in roaming rates for travel to many international destinations.

United Telecommunications Services’ (UTS’) mobile carrier already provided automatic reliable connectivity while abroad at very competitive rates, but lowered the rates even further to allow its customers to stay in touch during travel to many of the most popular travel destinations, it was stated in a press release on Monday.

“Now customers can count on even better rates when calling back home from their prepaid or post-paid Chippie numbers. The reduced rates are offered for most popular travel destinations such as the Netherlands, USA, Colombia, the Dominican Republic or any other of your favourite destinations,” UTS said in the release. “Offering affordability during travel has always been of great importance the mobile operator.”

The Chippieland concept was developed based on exactly that desire and has been available for very many years. Based on this concept, Chippie mobile customers can connect to the Chippie networks on other islands to continue calling at local rates. The philosophy that travelling for work or pleasure should always be worry-free is at the heart of the Chippieland concept, but it also forms the basis for the affordable, seamless roaming services offered by UTS.

“The company took this even a step further by developing a roaming miles programme, where customers will get loyalty miles for their roaming usage. These points can be used towards future travel through many major international rewards programmes such as AA Advantage, Flying Blue, Marriot rewards and many more.

“The worldwide trend is that people expect to be able to stay in touch while travelling abroad and we have the tools, systems and partnerships to make that happen,” UTS Marketing and Communication Officer Ivy Lambert said.

“Our customers have a choice in their telecom provider and we appreciate the confidence placed in us to offer a reliable connection at home and abroad. There’s not better way for us to show our customers that they can count on us than to continue bringing them the best rates, most reliable network and additional benefits like the Roaming Miles programme.”
