Muscat, 21 May 2013 – Nawras proudly announces the launch of Musafir, the first mobile data roaming solution designed to help customers stay online for less when travelling to any GCC country. With prepaid and postpaid plans offered with a choice of daily or weekly rates, Nawras is dramatically reducing data roaming rates and making life easier for business and leisure travellers alike.
Musafir customers can now keep their data roaming switched on to send and read emails, use social media like Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter as well as browse the internet while roaming, with generous data allowances and considerably lower rates than ever before. A daily plan with 100 MB of data is only three Omani Rials and a weekly plan with 1 GB of data is just 10 Omani Rials.
Nawras customers no longer have the worry of ‘bill shock’ as roaming expenses are fully under their control. With Musafir there is the confidence of knowing that great value is built into every plan.
“We are very excited to be unveiling the new Musafir data roaming plans today as these will make a real difference for our customers travelling to the GCC,” said Nashat Al Riyami, Nawras Head of Segments. “Musafir will help our customers enjoy fantastic value when they are roaming and wanting to stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues in Oman. At the same time, they can rest assured that they know exactly how little their plan is costing.”
While abroad, Musafir can be activated by simply dialling *1141*41# for a prepaid daily roaming plan or *141*61# for a prepaid weekly plan. Customers preferring a postpaid plan should dial *141*441# for the daily option or *141*461# to choose a weekly plan. All plans can be extended at any time.
Being a caring communications provider, Nawras is always looking for new ways to enhance the customer experience and this includes providing customers with greater peace of mind when roaming.
