Riyadh - SPA
Saudi Commission for Communication & Information Technology approved new promotional packages for international roaming service.
The new packages target scholarship students and their families as well as Saudi families on vacation outside the country. CIT
Commission expects the move would stimulate local service providers to reduce local call rates by launching of more lower
packages. Moreover, it would trigger service providers into investing in quality improvement and proliferation of services. All
these prospects meet CIT Commission objectives of fair competition in an open CIT market.
In a previous occasion, the CIT Commission noted millions of SIM chips transferred outside the country that were misused for
receiving free international calls at the expense of local communication services.
