MobileCom, Jordan’s youngest GSM operator, has clinched roaming agreements with 47 operators in 21 new countries. That brings its total number of roaming partners to 100 in 60 countries.

"MobileCom has established extensive agreements with roaming partners around the world to ensure that its customers can stay in touch with family, friends or colleagues while traveling abroad," said Zaki Nahhas, international roaming coordinator at MobileCom. "The speed at which agreements are established is dependent on the frequency of visits to that country by our customers; as we want to ensure that our customers can depend on their MobileCom lines in the largest number of countries possible but priority is given to those countries most visited."

MobileCom has signed new agreements in the following countries: Oman, Bangladesh, India, Taiwan, Macau, Algeria, Mozambique, Namibia, Tunis, Zimbabwe, Croatia, Finland, Iceland, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Jersey Island, Bangladesh, Slovak Republic and Australia.

MobileCom launched last year as the second GSM operator in Jordan, bringing competition to a previously monopolised market. The company is owned by Jordan Telecom, which is in turn 40% owned by France Telecom.
