How Telkomsel's 01017 Promo is Bringing Voice Calls Back in Trend

It is undeniable that the use of communication platforms over the Internet has been rising, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic where more and more people are working from home or remotely from their team. With OTT platforms, we are now able to make video calls, or reach out to your friends and family globally at a cheaper price simply by connecting to the Internet. However, it is also undeniable that there are several benefits we can’t get from OTT platforms, which are offered by Telkomsel’s 01017 IDD Promo package. 


This month Telkomsel has officially launched its 01017 IDD Malaysia Promo package that allows you to enjoy a high quality of phone call to your loved ones in Malaysia starting just at Rp. 1,000 for 10 minutes! This IDD promo package is available until December 31st 2020, so hurry up and make good use of it now and click the link to learn more about it https://www.telkomsel.com/en/idd/idd-01017

Besides this affordable price, here are several reasons why traditional voice calls may be your preference over OTTs: 


1. No Internet connection needed


Stating the obvious, you need Internet connection to make a VoIP call, and we all know that there are times when our Internet crashes for numerous reasons. With legacy phone calls, you don’t have to worry about finding the right spot to get strong internet connection as you can make international phone calls from anywhere at anytime you wish. 


2. Excellent quality of phone calls without distortions


For those of you who are in a long-distance relationship, or missing a family member who is working abroad must know be familiar with the frustration of having your conversations cut off due to bad Internet connection. During peak hours, Internet speed may slow down due to Internet traffic and it may cause disturbance to your calls that you have been waiting for or even disconnect you completely. You don’t have to worry about any of this with traditional voice calls. 


 3. Say Adios! to unwanted calls


Let’s be honest, when we’re super busy working from home, we will be on our laptops all day and chances are we will always appear online on our communication platform. This makes us available to others in the same online platform and people will have access to call you. You will often get irritating phone calls while you’re trying to work on something important and this will distract you from your main tasks. 


4. Quickly make phone calls to new contact numbers


With OTT platforms such as Whatsapp, you can’t make a phone call to a destined number unless you already have it saved in your WhatsApp contact list. This becomes such a hassle when you’re in rush to call a new number. Whereas with legacy phone calls, there’s no need to go through that step to make a quick call, simply type the destination number and you’re good to go. 


5. Better guarantee to make emergency calls


Imagine that you’re in an urgent situation where there’s no Internet connection. Well in this case, legacy voice calls will be your hero as you can make emergency calls to Police, Ambulance, or anyone else who can help you at a given situation. 



So these are the merits you can enjoy from legacy phone calls and with Telkomsel’s 01017 IDD Promo, we don’t need to worry about our international calls being too expensive. Learn more about 01017 IDD Promo here https://www.telkomsel.com/en/idd/idd-01017
