One-2 Call Freedom Options

On this basic plan you can add tons of different tariff promotions (only one at a time) and one or more packages.
The promotions offer various discounts and bonus charges, but they all drastically reduce the validity periods or have other tricky problems.
They also change so often that it is not worth keeping track on them. You can always call the customer care hotline for the latest promotions.
You can change promotions at the hotline for an average fee of 30 baht.
