POSTED: 05/24/11 1:17 PM

St. Maarten – TelEm Group is launching a campaign this week to increase the number of fixed telephone lines in St. Maarten homes – reversing what has become a global trend. According to telecommunication providers around the world, homeowners are giving up their fixed telephones lines and monthly subscriptions for fixed lines in preference to mobile phones and VOiP services such as Skype. But TelEm Group says a new pricing package that includes free minutes and the possibility of high-speed internet connections makes a fixed landline telephone the best value for the customer than it has ever been.

The new packages are being announced today and offer three subscriber payment rates for budget-conscious customers. Telem’s key selling points are that landline to landline calls are cheaper, the new plans have free minute packages, landlines are excellent backups 24/7, there are pay as you call packages available, the subscriber rates are “excellent”, that landlines are a must in the hurricane season, Telem’s lines are on digital technology and the handsets “look great.” Fixed line customers also have “the added bonus and security of knowing that all landlines will now be connecting to the company’s new CS2K Softswitch which will greatly speed up repairs and installations of faulty and new telephone lines.”

“Our mobile customers have enjoyed similar packages to suit their budget and amount of use for many years. Now we have been able to put similar packages in place for our landline users also,” TelEm Group Marketing & Sales Manager Carmen Lake-Reyes said.

She added, “While mobile technology continues to advance in leaps and bounds, the good old reliable “home phone” is now more dependable than ever with a host of modern features to boot. We have invested millions over the years to put our telephone network underground so that in the event of a hurricane our customers remain connected for longer or are reconnected quicker once power is available.”

Subscribers on the company’s ADSL high-speed internet service who have a home phone can get their voice and data on one line as a fixed prepaid or on a regular fixed line service.

“New fiber technology means you can bring anything to the home. TV, internet, voice via you telephone line, so even around the world we are seeing a renewed interest in the fixed line technology,” Lake Reyes said as she stressed how surprised customers will be at the number of services that can be offered with a fixed phone line.
