FRiENDi’s Sri Lankan clients to see prices fall - Oman

FRiENDi Mobile, the immigrant focused low cost MVNO, has found yet another overseas partner in its drive to bring down calling costs. Dialog Telekom and FRiENDi Mobile have entered into an agreement which will allow the two operators’ subscribers to call each others networks at a lower cost than before – both now offer the lowest market rate for such calls.

Supun Weerasinghe, Chief Executive Officer of Dialog, said: "Our partnership with FRiENDi mobile is an important step in our efforts to connect Sri Lankans overseas, as well as their friends and family back home. In addition to preferential call rates, both Dialog and FRiENDi will leverage this partnership to introduce value-added options that would enrich the mobile experience of customers in Oman and home. We are excited to be partnering with FRiENDi mobile, and we look forward to a successful partnership in the years ahead."

Antti Arponen, Chief Executive Officer for FRiENDi said: “Teaming up with Dialog is part of the focus of FRiENDi Mobile to serve people with a piece of their heart abroad, i.e. expatriates and nationals with an international element to their life. Providing Oman-based customers with value for money is our key aim when it comes to the Reach Out program, and we are continuing rolling out partnerships with mobile operators in Asia and elsewhere until we have all relevant countries covered."
