The telecom company has reduced the roaming charges on calls, text messages and mobile data. The offer is limited to the customers travelling within the six Gulf countries. Both the prepaid and postpaid users will be benefited from the discount offer.
Customers can avail discounts up to 29% on mobile data and 21% on incoming calls. The charges for 1MB have reduced to Dhs1 and per minute call charges are even less than Dhs1. However, the telco is not giving much discount on outgoing calls and text messages.
