Huge Response to Qtel’s International Packs

Published November 18th, 2009 - 02:01 GMT

Qtel’s new International Packs, which provide affordable overseas calling rates all day, every day to all countries, have proven to be one of the Qtel’s most popular launches of 2009, with thousands sold within the first few days of availability.

Strong demand for the packs, which offer the best value for international calling to all destinations, reflects the increasing competition within Qatar’s telecommunications market, where customers benefit from more choice and great value. 

Qtel’s International Packs offer a set number of minutes at specially-reduced rates, making it one of the most cost effective ways to make international calls. Shahry customers who buy the packs can use their allocated minutes to call any overseas destination, at no extra charge, whenever they want to.

As an introductory offer, Qtel is providing a special discounted rate for the festive season, offering an additional set of bonus minutes on the international packs for every customer.

Shahry customers can choose either the QR50 International Pack, with 30 minutes of talk time and 20 holiday bonus minutes, or the QR100 International Pack with 100 call minutes, with 20 holiday bonus minutes. During the promotional period, the QR 100 Pack offers an effective call rate of QR 0.83 to any international destination, making it one of the most affordable ways to call overseas for the holidays.

To subscribe to the QR 50 International Packs, all customers have to do is send an SMS for activation to 92558 with the code E2*IMP*A*50 for English.

Customers can get the QR100 pack by sending E2*IMP*A*100 to 92558.

Given the huge initial response to the International Packs, Qtel is set to launch a wider range in the months ahead, with the most competitive rates for overseas calls in the market. There are also plans to launch International Packs for Hala customers.

Additionally, Qtel continues to invest in its world-class international network, to ensure that customers can reach friends and family overseas whenever they want to, with a particular focus on the most popular countries for overseas calls.

For Eid this year, Qtel is running a series of special offers alongside the Bonus Minutes with International Packs for Shahry customers.
