THURAYA has signed roaming agreements with both the GSM operators in Pakistan i.e. Mobilink and Ufone.
Roaming partnerships allows THURAYA subscribers to use their mobile phones in a GSM service area. THURAYA subscribers can roam within their respective GSM operator’s network. e.g. when you are indoors you may experience weak satellite signals, to enjoy seamless connectivity you have an option of switching your handset to the compatible GSM network.
THURAYA subscribers (with THURAYA SIM cards) can access Mobilink or Ufone network area in Pakistan. Your handset on GSM preference will automatically catch the signals of the operator, whichever has stronger signals present. You can also exercise your network preference by opting for any particular operator. Please note that the tariff structures for using any particular GSM network will vary as per individual agreements with each operator.
GSM subscribers from networks who have roaming agreement with THURAYA can access THURAYA satellite services anywhere in the coverage area using their existing GSM SIM cards and a THURAYA Handset.
