MobileCom signs roaming agreements in 25 countries
Jordan's second GSM operator, MobileCom, announced yesterday it has launched its roaming service in 25 countries in a move to increase the range in which customers can use the company’s lines. According to company press release, MobileCom expects to top 50 more countries on its roaming partner list within the first half of next year.
Roaming agreements enable users of different GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) operators to use their lines in different countries without having to change the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card or the number while traveling. GSM operators establish these agreements to enable exchange of users or customers on each network so to ensure the satisfaction of both parties.
MobileCom launched its services mid-September 2000, and is the public operator of the mobile communications license granted to Jordan Telecom. For the Middle East region, MobileCom customers can now use their GSM lines in Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, Lebanon, Palestine, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. — (Albawaba-MEBG)
