Thuraya is promising to link the remote villages and townships that lie within its coverage area with its latest payphones. Unveiled at this year’s show, the payphones use the telecommunications company’s numerous satellites to enable customers to make calls in areas where fixed line communications are not installed.

“For many of these remotely located and scattered communities, no other telecommunications technology matches satellite telephony in cost effectiveness, rapid roll out, convenience and accessibility,” says Mohammad Omran, chairman of Thuraya.

“The Thuraya payphones will connect far-flung areas with the rest of the world affordably [and] contribute towards the long-term development of people living there,” he explains.

The payphones will operate using different card types in a wide range of applications.
