International calls. Local rates.
Etisalat today announced the ‘Wasel International Add-on’, which allows prepaid customers to make international calls at local call rates.
The add-on supports 6 countries: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and China, and Etisalat networks in Egypt and Sri Lanka.
“At Etisalat, we continuously seek to provide our customers with attractive offers that meet their needs. Leveraging Etisalat’s presence overseas, we are delivering an incredible value to residents of the UAE, allowing them to talk longer at more affordable rates on Etisalat’s high-quality network,” said Khaled Elkhouly, chief marketing officer at Etisalat.
Wasel prepaid customers can subscribe by dialing *141# or by sending ‘IDD’ as an SMS to 1010. Users will be charged 0.5 fills per second, with AED 1 at the beginning of the call as call set-up free.
