Thuraya Satellite Phone Partners with USA Service
Leading international mobile satellite phone operator, Thuraya Telecommunications Company has launched its roaming service in the United States of America. The partnership is with American mobile operator, T-Mobile. The service, which commenced on July 12, allows Thuraya subscribers to roam seamlessly with their Thuraya mobile numbers into the T-Mobile network that reaches 96 percent of Americans. Thuraya customers in the region can now make and receive calls, and also send and receive text messages (SMS). The Company’s GmPRS roaming service will be enabled afterwards on the T-Mobile network.
Mr. Tarek Shqairat, Director of Inter-Carrier Relations, Thuraya Telecommunications Company, said: “With more than 350 roaming partners worldwide, Thuraya is the only satellite operator offering roaming services over GSM networks. This facility is particularly beneficial to travelers who want to remain connected all the time.” Consequently, Thuraya subscribers enjoy ubiquitous coverage, even in areas outside the Thuraya satellite network.
Complementing the roaming service is Thuraya’s latest and the most advanced satellite phone - Thuraya XT-DUAL. This superior handheld features both satellite and GSM capabilities allowing users to alternate between Thuraya satellite network and any available GSM network. Furthermore, the handset supports Tri-Band GSM frequencies – 900, 1800 and 1900 – making it usable in the US and Canada.
