Tango Telecom backs data pricing options in Africa

Tango Telecom has deployment its data charging and policy control platform with an operator in Africa.
This has enabled the operator to launch its new mobile data services with pricing options that encourage uptake.
Tango Telecom’s solution has also enabled the operator to offer and manage free introductory access to premium news and social networking sites to incite subscriptions.
Rory O’Toole, VP of global sales, said the ability to quickly launch usage-based packages, independently of the existing prepaid system, was key to the success of this launch.
