Operator offers double data value for a limited period
Vodafone Qatar has launched mobile broadband services in the country with a range of flexible tariffs designed to lure price conscious customers.
The operator launched two mobile broadband packages, called Red and Freedom. Red customers can use 500MB of data for QR100 ($27.4), valid for 60 days, while Freedom customers can use 2GB of data valid for 30 days, with any unused credit carried over for another 30 days. Subscribers to both packages can access roaming data services for an additional fee.
As a special introductory promotion, Vodafone Qatar is offering Red customers 1GB of data for the price of 500MB until 15th August, 2010. Vodafone Qatar customers can also buy a USB dongle for QR299, giving individual users access to mobile broadband via their laptops or PCs.
Meanwhile, Vodafone's MiFi device, which creates a WiFi hotspot for up to five devices, is available for QR599.
Customers can also get a special bundle comprising USB Stick, SIM card and mobile broadband package for QR399. Vodafone's mobile broadband is also available with a Vodafone Micro SIM supporting iPad and iPhone 4.
"We are delighted to launch the mobile broadband service in Qatar that offers our customers simple and easy to understand price plans of good value," said Grahame Maher, CEO, Vodafone Qatar.
The mobile broadband sticks and MiFi are available at all Vodafone's retail stores and its online store.
