Thuraya has launched an enhanced version of its global Thuraya ECO service. Available in 83 countries across Europe, Asia and Africa, the service allows for calls charged at 50% of standard rates. Customers who purchase a Thuraya ECO SIM pack will now benefit from more pre-loaded credit and a SIM card with one year’s validity; they will have access to the service for one year from the date of their first call.
“We have upgraded our Thuraya ECO offerings to improve customer experience of the service. In the 83 calling locations customers will now have a much longer validity of their SIM card, eliminating the need for subscribers to track their top-up dates to determine when their SIM card is expiring,” said Thuraya’s Chief Strategy Officer, Mr. Sultan Al Ghafli.
The Thuraya ECO SIM pack is aimed at a wide range of markets and so is priced to be an affordable solution, particularly in regard to areas where there is limited access to terrestrial networks.
“In addition to the longer SIM validity, the Thuraya ECO SIM card is renewable. Upon SIM card expiry, customers have 90 days to renew their account and any remaining balance is carried forward to the new validity period which makes the service very cost-effective for users,” elaborated Mr. Al Ghafli.
Thuraya provides ubiquitous blanket coverage not only in urban centers but also in remote and rural areas in 140 countries across the globe.
