The Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has extended a free offer to Umra visitors and pilgrims who use the Sawa Ziyara SIM cards. The offer gives Sawa Ziyara users the chance to make unlimited international phone calls for one day.
The initiative from STC gives pilgrims the chance to contact their loved ones and make unlimited international calls for free irrespective of call duration or the pilgrim’s phone credit. The 24-hour offer ends midnight Sunday, 13 September 2015.
Earlier, STC announced the readiness of its network for this year’s Hajj season with 20% additional capacity for its 4G and 3G networks in Makkah and Madinah as well as Mesha’er. The increase allows for smoother data traffic on smart devices.
STC also supported a number of technical solutions aimed at ensuring faster data and voice traffic especially around heavy traffic areas in the vicinities of the two Holy Mosques and Mesha’er.
