LIMA, Peru, Oct. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Viettel's Peruvian brand, Bitel, has won the "Best Telecom Product" award at the prestigious 2019 International Business Awards - Stevie Awards. Its winning product this year was its unlimited call/data package Ti5, which aims to provide customers with a high-quality telecommunications experience.
Bitel's unlimited Ti5 package offers to Peruvian customers unlimited call to 50 contacts and unlimited internet access with no additional charge. Bitel's revenue from the Ti5 package now accounts for 50% of the company's prepaid subscription revenue, only one year after this product was introduced.
In addition, it is well noted that only companies from the United States and Peru were honored in this "Best Telecom Product" category this year.
Located in Peru, Bitel is one of the few enterprises that has implemented tailor-made strategies to provide consumers with top service experiences.
As a result, Bitel's 4G subscribers grew at an impressive rate of 139% during the first six months in 2019, compared with the same period a year ago. Bitel has been providing information technology infrastructure for Peru's government with total contract value of more than US$46 million, which is 2.5 times the amount in 2018. The company managed 182% of its profit target for the first-half of 2019, up 944% over the same period last year.
Bitel's popularity in Peru was also recognised in June this year when the company became the most popular operator in the country based on a customer satisfaction index by Arellano, a leading research and marketing consulting firm. The result affirms the strategy that Bitel has pursued since entering the South American market.
