This offer is valid for all Zong prepaid customers, and is automatically activated without any prior subscription charges. Customers only need to activate the International Roaming access level by dialing the 310 helpline or visiting a service center prior to their travel. Zong users will be charged on minimal rates of Rs 0.25/second (exclusive of taxes) for outgoing calls to both Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
It needs to be noted that Zong’s Roam Like Home rates are the lowest in comparison to both Pakistani operators and Saudi Arabian operators. This is a fairly welcome offer given that the holy month of Ramadan is just around the corner. In this regard, a large number of Pakistanis will be travelling to Saudi Arabia and will hence be able to remain connected to their friends and families at all times at the lowest rates possible.
In this regard, Mr Sajid Mehmood Chief Regulatory Officer (CRO) & Chief Admin Officer (CAO) Zong noted that “Zong has always been at the forefront in terms of facilitating its customers in international travel. Our Roam Like Home offer will in particular assist the vast number of Pakistanis planning Umrah this Ramadan, at rates that are the lowest in the market.”
It is also important to note that Zong offers the lowest international rates amongst the industry of Rs 1.00/minute + tax for calling on both mobile and landline to 12 destinations, which include USA, UK, Canada, Denmark, France, Spain, Italy, Poland, Netherlands, Germany, Hong Kong and India.
