An offer to allow Nigerian pilgrims to make and receive calls, send and receive SMS, and use data at very cheap rates in the Holy Land in Saudi Arabia has been introduced by 9mobile.

A statement by the customer-friendly telecommunication network disclosed that the Special Hajj Roaming Package allows pilgrims to make local calls within Saudi Arabia for as low as N45 per minute and call back all Nigerian networks at N70 per minute.

The package will also enable pilgrims to receive incoming calls in the Holy Land at N60 per minute and send SMS at N35.

9mobile explained that it came up with this initiative to allow its prepaid and postpaid customers to remain connected with their families, friends and loved ones in Saudi Arabia and Nigeria at affordable rates.

However, it is a promo, which lasts till July 31, 2021, the statement disclosed and is available on Mobily and Zain networks in Saudi Arabia.

With the discounted roaming offer, all customers will also receive SMS free and a Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) data rate of 5 kobo per 10kb. All pilgrims also get 200 minutes of free incoming calls upon recharge of N5,000.

“We are a caring brand, and this offer is us demonstrating our care. The world has been through a lot lately. Recall that there was no Hajj last year because of the pandemic.

“The pandemic has also caused some economic disruptions, and we want to make sure pilgrims enjoy pocket-friendly rates,” the Chief Commercial Officer at 9mobile, Mr Stjepan Udovicic, stated.

He also disclosed that apart from the discounted voice calls and SMS, prepaid customers will also enjoy data bundles ranging from 100MB to 1GB at very affordable prices, thereby staying connected online 24/7.
