Ooredoo today announced one of the most significant pricing revamps for call costs in Qatar’s history, offering the lowest ever local calling rate of 10Dhs/minute for all calls to any network in Qatar.

The new campaign, “One Qatar, One Call Rate,” means that Hala customers using the International Saver Key or Egypt Key will always be able to pay the same rate whether they are calling local Ooredoo lines, or calling numbers provided by other operators in Qatar. Experts have hailed the move as a significant step forward for customer rights, as Ooredoo is leading the way in the region in terms of standardised and transparent pricing. With immediate effect, a uniform calling rate of 10Dhs/min will be available on Ooredoo’s International Saver Key and Egypt Key for calling any local number in Qatar.

In recent years, we’ve worked hard to simplify pricing and make it easier for people to see the incredible value that Ooredoo offers. Now, by providing uniformed pricing for Hala customers – whoever they are calling – we are taking this mission a step further.” “Just as Ooredoo has led the way in rolling-out the nationwide Ooredoo Supernet to offer incredible speeds and crystal clear voice, now we are rolling-out our unified approach to pricing that we think will surprise and delight our customers,” he added.

The International Saver Key gives customers the incredible international calling rate of just 45dhs per minute for calls to 121 countries at QR 1 per week. International Saver Key customers will also now be able to unlock the low cost local calling rate of just 10dhs per minute, removing the distinction between calls to Ooredoo numbers and to other operators. To activate the International Saver Key, customers just needs to send “ISK” as an SMS to 121.

The Egypt Key offers the lowest calling rate of 30dhs per minute for calls to Egypt at QR 2 per week and now will unlock the local calling rate of just 10dhs per minute also. To activate the Egypt Key just send “EGY” to 121. Among the countries covered by the International Keys is popular calling destinations such as Nepal, UAE, the United Kingdom, the Philippines, and South Africa.
