FRiENDi mobile tours labour camps – Oman

Squarely aimed at attracting business from the immigrant worker communities resident in Oman, FRiENDi mobile has been touring labour camps promoting its new offering. Within Oman many workers recruited into the construction industry have come from abroad, especially from India. Following the recent agreement with IDEA Cellular (Indian MNO), FRiENDi subscribers can receive cost savings to place their international calls.

Antti Arponen, Chief Executive Officer of FRiENDi mobile said: “The majority of Oman will now have heard of FRiENDi mobile. However, due to lack of access to the media and Internet, we realise that labourers, who make up a massive portion of Oman's expatriate community, may not really be aware of what we do or, more importantly, what we can offer them. By visiting the labour camps our roadshows go straight to the heart of this often overlooked audience.”

As part of the tour the operator is giving away welcome packs containing 100 free minutes, an additional 100 minutes of texts and free SIMs plus a welcome gift.
