Ministry of Telecom announces new roaming service

Wonet to offer data and phone calls abroad at the same tariffs as local rates

The Ministry of Telecommunication (MoT) has assigned the Switzerland-based company Wonet, to provide a new Value Added Service (VAS) for Roaming.

At $25 per month, Wonet's service will allow Alfa and Touch users to use the Internet abroad, consume data, receive and make phone calls at tariffs to local rates.

Wonet is a mobile application that is activated through a chip that can be purchased, using the subscriber's existing phone number.

The service will be activated within two weeks, according to the Ministry.

The profits from Wonet's service will be equally split between Wonet, the service provider, Alfa and Touch.

The two mobile operators will be responsible for marketing the service, and the MoT has approved the allocation of $100,000 for service’s marketing campaign.

Wonet offers its data services in more than one hundred countries.
