Six month old QCell Sierra Leone has taken the lead in making communication affordable for customers by dropping their offnet calls from L697 per minute to Le400 per minute in line with the National Telecommunication Commission (NATCOM) and the law.
Addressing pressmen yesterday at their Wilkinson Road office, Chief Executive Officer of the company,Jayamani Karthik,said they acknowledged the fact that communication has become a necessity and not a luxury, and that they would ensure the least Sierra Leonean enjoys such necessity.
“QCell Sierra Leone is pleased to inform the public that we have dropped our offnet calls from L697 per minute to Le400 per minute in compliance with the regulators and the law. Yet again we are the first to reduce our prices and leading the Telecom revolution in Sierra Leone,” he said.

“Every day there is something new and QCell will remain to be a customer obsessed company.”

Jayamani Karthik expressed thanks and appreciation to NATCOM,the Ministry of Information and Communications and the entire Government of Sierra Leone for ‘directing operators to reduce offnet tariffs’.
“Thanks to them. QCell subscribers calling any other network would now be charged only Le400 per minute instead of Le697 per minute,” he reiterated.
He expressed delight that since they started operations in Sierra Leone, prices have been going down and that they will continue to push and provide Sierra Leoneans with high quality and affordable services.
“We will work on reducing this tariff overtime as we are committed to provide affordable, accessible and reliable services to the general populace of Sierra Leone and we once again thank all the stakeholders for the historic decision,” he said.
