Australian telecommunications operator TPG is focused to start a mobile plan for senior citizens in the second half of the year. As part of the plan, the services will be free for the first two years.
Senior citizens above the age of 65 are eligible to avail the plan. According to TODAY, the company said in a statement, the plan includes SIM card, 3-gigabyte of monthly data and unlimited calls to local mobile numbers. However, there are no details presented on the charges after the first two years.
TPG’s Executive Chairman David Teoh, said, “We have chosen to focus on assisting senior citizens as our first initiative to demonstrate our commitment in improving what is available for the community.”
Founded in 1986, the company is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. TPG aims to start offering services to customers early this year and set-up a nationwide mobile network by September.
