Globe & Mobily launch 1st Kababayan SIM for OFWs in Saudi

Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) can expect to pay lower rates for calls and text messages to family and friends in the Philippines on the back of the recently-inked partnership between Globe Telecom and Saudi Arabia-based mobile operator Mobily. The latter is Saudi Arabia ’s second largest mobile operator with a market share of about 40%. It is the brand carried by Saudi elecom firm Etihad Etisalat.

Mobily partnered with Globe to launch the Mabuhay Kababayan Prepaid SIM, a new service that gives Mobily subscribers special rates for calls and text messages to the Philippines . With the Mobily Mabuhay Kababayan Prepaid SIM, calls to Globe, Tattoo and TM in the Philippines will be charged 99 halala (0.99 Saudi Riyal or about P12.01) per minute, and 30 halala (0.30 Saudi Riyal or about P3.66) per text message.

“We value the hard work and sacrifices of our OFWs and we know how important it is for them to stay in touch with the loved-ones back in the Philippines . You can expect a lot more from this major partnership with Mobily,” said Kimmie Moreno, Marketing Head for Overseas Filipino Communities (International) at Globe.

“We have partnered with a reputable telecommunication company like Mobily to allow our kabababayans in Saudi to keep in touch with friends and family at reduced rates, giving them more talk time. This is a key milestone for Globe since this is the first of such partnership in the Middle East,” said Rychie Albert, Globe’s International Business Development Head for Middle East and Europe .

There are an estimated 1.1-Million Filipinos living and working in Saudi Arabia.
