UAE telecom operator du has introduced a flat rate roaming tariff incoming and local calls in the GCC.

The One Region One Rate scheme allows du subscribers to receive calls, and make local calls, for AED 1.25 per minute, in all GCC countries. Outgoing calls to the UAE will be charged at AED 3 per minute, with all other outgoing calls at AED 9 per minute.

The program, which is available by default to all du subscribers, is intended to provide a more simple approach to roaming in the GCC.

Farid Faraidooni, EVP Commercial, du, said: “The unified roaming tariff is a reflection of our commitment to simplify the lives of our customers. It means our customers no longer need to keep track of the various complicated roaming charges used in the GCC region. Roamers will enjoy low and attractive rates which makes roaming simple and affordable.”

Under the scheme, du Monthly Plan subscribers can make and receive calls, SMS and MMS, and use mobile Internet, BlackBerry and video calling services, while pre-paid Pay As You Go customers can receive calls and send and receive SMS. Outgoing calls can be made with some GCC operators.
