Today is Chinese New Year!
To celebrate, Lycamobile, the international mobile telecoms provider, is celebrating the Chinese New Year by offering customers the chance to call home for less during the Chinese New Year festivities and throughout the New Year of the Ox.
In the spirit of celebrating the Year of Ji Chou, known in English as the Ox, Lycamobile has a strong offer of low call rates that will enable customers to call their friends and families landlines and mobiles in China for an effective rate of just 2p per minute when they top-up for £20 or more (standard rate only 4p per minute), bringing them together at this special time of year.
As part of the festivities Lycamobile is also encouraging everyone to get down to London’s Chinatown to enjoy the biggest Chinese New Year celebrations outside Asia and pick up some free Lycamobile goodies at the same time! From today, Monday 26 January, for one week only, ten Lycamobile rickshaws will be handing out freebies such as t-shirts, caps and pens to lucky passers-by as they travel through Chinatown.
Lycamobile’s CEO, Milind Kangle, stated: “Chinese New Year is a special celebration, we know how much family means to our customers. For those who can’t be with their loved ones for the Chinese New Year we offer everyone the opportunity to call back home to celebrate this event with friends and family. With these fantastic low rates it’s as cheap as a national call in the UK, which actually makes calling home for our customers so much easier. Don’t forget to visit London’s china town from 26 January for your chance to pick up some Lycamobile goodies!”
New Lycamobile customers also get an extra £2 credit on registration and all customers get an additional £10 worth of calls on £20 top-up vouchers. Calls can be made by simply replacing an existing SIM card, in any unlocked UK mobile handset,with the Lycamobile Pay As You Go card. Top-ups and SIM cards are available from more than 115,000 UK retail outlets, including newsagents, convenience stores, PayPoint, Payzone and e-pay.
