Hooray for toxic cannibal fish!

Tele2 has launched its Urā! prepaid for LVL 0.70 (near candy-bar price) and calls within the network at LVL 0.049 per minute. My only question is - will this product, which looks like it is aimed at Bite Latvija's Toxic and Zetcom's Hello – not end up cannibalizing the low-end Golden Fish (LVL 0.99 if I am not mistaken)? We shall see...

With OKarte from October 24th to January 31th one minute (in evenings, nights & weekends) costs about 0,01Ls.

Hi Juris,

Sorry, slightly off topic, but isn’t that strange that so large and reputable portal is hosting a satellite decoding upload center

Not to mention the fact that this center is hacked

kingpin: do you know something about quality of "Zivs"??
Generally GPRS doesn`t work most of the time.
Premium prepaid card is "OKarte", but I`ll definately use "Toxic" when it`s available for me, because of GPRS.

Anonymous: in latvia almost every ISP has it`s own FTP server an I wouldn`t say the contents of them are legal :P
I love this country!!!

Borje,
Did you make a typo or are the Italians out of their fucking minds? Just curious :)

No typo! The Italians charge heavily for GPRS services, but they very often have a sort of "special price flat rate" the Summer Card, the Christmas Card an so on. You buy a scratch card and load your prepaid card with one month of unlimited GPRS use.
