Batelco cuts IDD rates for SimSim customers
Manama, March 20, 2013
Batelco, Bahrain’s leading communications services provider, has announced great reductions for off-peak IDD (International Direct Dial) calls made through its SimSim lines to a number of destinations, for a limited period starting on March 21.
The reduced rates apply to all IDD calls made from mobile phones using SimSim services to the UK (50 fils/min), USA (25 fils), India (11 fils), Pakistan (39 fils), Sri Lanka (45 fils), Bangladesh (13 fils) and Philippines (49 fils) during off-peak hours (4 pm to 8 am) and Fridays all day.
Batelco ensures the most competitive charges for IDD calls made through SimSim lines thanks to its per-second billing system, the company said.
“SimSim services offer a very convenient means of communication that enables customers of all SimSim packages except O-net packages, to make international calls directly from their mobile phones at anytime around the clock and pay for only the time they use to the exact second,” said Batelco Group general manager media relations Ahmed Al Janahi.
Batelco’s SimSim customers can also make unlimited weekly calls for 900 fils (send AW to 4554); unlimited monthly calls for BD4 (send AM to 4554); free calls every day from 12 am to 6 am for all SimSim subscribers; and free calls all day on Fridays to all SimSim subscribers.
