Vodafone expands footprint including Rabi

FIJI TIMES ONLINE Sat 13 February 2010

Being a monopoly player for a long while, Vodafone in many ways is leading the telecommunication industry in the provision of services.It has the largest retail chain -- some opening until 9pm -- a fully fledged customer care centre, it offers vehicle tracking, web top up, e-shop, and a "live agent chat" service through which any of their customers can contact Vodafone agents via internet chat.

But its biggest contribution has been in community service, giving scholarships and different plans for students.

However, the company said its Blood SMS has been the most popular where people needing blood have been helped.

The country's blood bank usually requests Vodafone if they need a certain type of blood, which the company then informs its customers through a text message. The company will expand its rural coverage with Rabi being the latest base station covering Udu Point and all coastal villages on Vanua Levu, Natewa Bay, parts of Taveuni and Qamea powered by renewable energy.

"Our footprint is increasing all the time in the rural areas with more sites planned for the maritime areas," Vodafone managing director Aslam Khan said.
