Movistar Argentina has introduced a new service dubbed as En Casa (’At Home’). The service allows the subscribers to acquire a mobile phone which is operational only at home, with a specific address defined by the user. The incoming calls are free of charge. The subscribers are charged a monthly fee, which includes airtime for voice calls, SMS or internet traffic.

After the available credit is over, the subscribers can top-up their Movistar en Casa account via Movistar Activa prepay cards or make electronic recharges. The offer is part of the Movistar Community services portfolio, which allows the operator’s mobile subscribers to call or send SMS to Movistar en Casa lines and vice-versa at 50% discounted prices.
