Ooredoo is offering five times more local minutes and SMS for its Hala Weekly and Shahry Pack customers during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
“In the spirit of the Holy Month, we are also adding a charitable donation of one dirham for every local call made on an Ooredoo line,” said Sheikh Saud bin Nasser al-Thani, CEO, Ooredoo.
With the additional allowance, customers using the QR40 Hala Weekly Pack will jump from the standard 200 local call minutes and SMS to get an additional 800 minutes and SMS, making for a total 1,000 minutes and SMS every week. Customers using the QR10 weekly pack will enjoy 175 local minutes and SMS.
Subscribers using the Shahry 750 Pack will see their monthly allowance leap to 32,500 local call minutes and SMS, and will continue to enjoy free unlimited calls to local landlines. Customers using the Shahry 55 Packs will jump from 200 call minutes and SMS to 1,000.
For Shahry Pack customers, only the original minute allowance can be used with the International Key service, which enables customers to transfer local minutes into International traffic.
For both Hala and Shahry customers, the standard minutes and SMS will be consumed first, before the additional bonus allowance will be used. The increase in local minutes and SMS applies to all calls made to Ooredoo lines and to customers of the other operator.
By boosting the number of minutes and SMS available, Ooredoo is supporting customers during one of the peak seasons for phone and SMS greetings. The increased allowance will be valid until August 10.
Giving back to the community is one of the main goals of Ooredoo’s Alrabaa (“Friends” in Arabic) campaign during Ramadan.
Since its launch on June 30, Ooredoo’s Alrabaa campaign has seen thousands of people interacting with the company on its website at www.ooredoo.qa and through social media, where customers can follow activities via the hashtag #alrabaa. The Alrabaa will participate in a range of activities throughout Ramadan.
