mobily: 100 active prepaid roaming destinations


Mobily announced a series of roaming agreements Sunday and said that it had 100 active prepaid roaming agreements – making it the operator with the widest prepaid roaming coverage in the Kingdom – according to a statement issued by the company.
Among agreements Mobily signed with other operators for prepaid roaming, are those with Jawal (Palestine), MTC (Bahrain), Ufone (Pakistan), Grameenphone (Bangladesh), Etisalat Misr, Du (UAE), Tunisian Telecom, and Cingular (United States).

Mobily has prepaid roaming coverage across the Arab peninsula in all Gulf Cooperation Council states, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Libya, Morocco, Morocco, France, Germany, Britain, Switzerland, and a number of east Asian states.
Mobily itself was the first Saudi operator to offer prepaid roaming, launch Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) and made mobile Internet services available to prepaid subscribers in the country.
Meanwhile, Mobily added SmarTone in Hong Kong, Etisalat Misr, Mobile One (Singapore) and Maxis (Malaysia, as new Video Call roaming partners, bringing the number of Mobily’s Video calling roaming partners to 10.
Last month, Mobily signed a series of 3G services (mobile broadband, video calling, mobile TV) roaming agreements with SFR in France, along with T-Mobile in Britain. Mobily first launched 3G services roaming with its partner Etisalat in the United Arab Emirates, when it first launched the service last year.
Mobily has roaming agreements and MMS with conventional mobile data with K-Cell (Kazakhistan), Du (UAE), E-Plus (Germany), almost on the heals of last month’s agreements with Claro in Brazil, MTC Kuwait, DTAC (Thailand), H3G (Italy), Swisscom, and Belgacom.
With the new roaming agreements, Mobily customers can make voice calls, send SMS text messages, MMS, and connect to mobile Internet in some 120 countries, make Mobily the largest Saudi operator with mobile Internet and MMS roaming agreements.
