Sri Lanka Telecom Mobitel unveiled its newest offer in roaming with exclusive rates in India, in partnership with Mobitel’s preferred network in India; Aircel.
The new offer for Mobitel roamers in India includes; incoming calls at just Rs 2 per min, calls within India at just Rs 3 per min, calls back to Sri Lanka at just Rs 20 per min, SMS at Rs 5 per message and GPRS at 64 cents per 10KB. In addition, Mobitel roamers can also enjoy calling Sri Lanka at a further discounted rate of Rs10 per min via the ‘CALL HOME’ service by dialing *140*94<number>#.
To enjoy these benefits, all that is required by a Mobitel customer is to select ‘AIRCEL’ network upon landing in India, on their roaming enabled Mobitel post paid connection. Speaking of the new offer Suren J Amarasekera, Chief Executive Officer, Mobitel, said, “As the national mobile
service provider in Sri Lanka, we felt it our responsibility to ensure that we bring in the best for our people. We found the perfect ‘fit’ in partnering with Aircel not only because they were our preferred partner network in India, but also because of them being the number one network in Tamil Nadu: the most frequently traveled region in India, by Sri Lankans.”
