Macedonian mobile operator Cosmofon yesterday announced plans to enter the domestic telephony market with a new service dubbed ALLO. In a statement the company says it is looking to offer fixed telephony services through its broadband network which currently covers 99.8% of the population. Cosmofon is offering pre-paid and post-paid telephony under the ALLO banner, with monthly subscriptions ranging from MKD199 (USD4.98) to MKD599. Pay-as-you-go services are priced from MKD1 per minute for local and national calls to another ALLO number, MKD1.50 per minute to other landline numbers, and from MKD1.99 to MKD9.99 per minute to mobile numbers (depending on time of call and the network the user is dialling). Cosmofon chief executive officer Petros Lefkovits said the launch of fixed line telephony would ensure Cosmofon continued to be competitive in the market. ‘The entry into landline telephony is yet another significant achievement of Cosmofon, after the company has been awarded a 3G licence and four regional WiMAX licences,’ he said.
