Telem launches new numbering plan on Statia

Rohie Ryddim to spice up introduction at Carnival Village
It’s Carnival time in Statia and the Telem Group of Companies will be launching a new numbering plan for St. Eustatius in grand carnival style on Friday, July 27, 2012 preceded by a special pre-introduction and items give away on Thursday, July 26, 2012 at the Carnival Village featuring a musical performance by Rohie Ryddim. 

The presentation will start at 9:00PM sharp, followed by what has been dubbed “De Session”. Admission to the Village is US$10 for adults and US$5 for children up to10 years old.
Converting to the new numbering plan has its benefits. Subscribers who convert get a new TelCell SIM free and get to make TC Statia to TC Statia calls at 22 cents (US) instead of 24 cents (US) per minute.
In addition, those who convert now could be the lucky winner of a brand new Bold 5 BlackBerry phone.
“The new numbering plan comes as a result of the break up of the Netherlands Antilles and is part of the on-going efforts to modernize our operations and bring effective, efficient and low cost telephony to all our subscribers,” explained Eutel director, Mr. Edward Benjamin.
“There could be no better time to introduce the new numbering plan as St. Eustatius is gripped by the feverish excitement of the carnival celebrations,” he added.
According to Mr. Benjamin, a swap for the new TelCell SIM not only qualifies the subscriber for an opportunity to win the BlackBerry Bold 5 and other raffles in the coming months, but also will allow the customer to “double top up from Thursday, July 26, 2012 until Sunday, July 29, 2012 at all vendors.”
Mr. Benjamin further explained that the sponsorship of the show by TelEm Group on Thursday, July 26, 2012 at the Carnival Village is “for awareness of what’s to happen on July 27, 2012 with the changing of the range to 318-6XXX.”
“Promotional items will be available at the village and during the swap,” he said.
Subscribers who wish to convert to the new 318-6 number range are encouraged to visit the Eutel office throughout the day on Friday, July 27 to ensure they have preference to obtain the number of their choice. For more information, please call Eutel at 318-2320 or 318-2210.
