Muslim faithfuls from Nigeria embarking on Umrah/Hajj to Saudi Arabia have many reasons to smile as the innovative and customer-friendly telecommunication network, 9mobile, has again launched a new season of its Hajj Roaming Offer that affords pilgrims the opportunity to make and receive calls, send and receive SMS texts, and use data at much cheaper rates while in the Holy Land.

Starting from May 1 to August 31, 2019, customers of 9mobile on Umrah and Hajj can stay connected with their families, friends and loved ones as the offer allows them to make local calls to Saudi Arabia for as low as N45 per minute.

The offer, which is available on Mobily and Zain networks in Saudi Arabia, also offers calls back to Nigeria at N70 per minute while pilgrims get 200 minutes free incoming calls upon recharge of N5,000.

With the discounted roaming offer, all customers will also enjoy SMS charges of N35 per page as well as a Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) data rate of 5kobo per 10kb.

Speaking on the new offer, Vice President Marketing, Adebisi Idowu, said 9mobile takes into consideration the large contingent of Nigerians going for Hajj and the need for them to stay connected with their families, friends and relations at such an important time. That is why 9mobile is offering them discounted roaming rates in Saudi Arabia.

“We are a caring brand that is consistently passionate about the comfort of our customers. Thus, in the spirit of the Holy Month of Ramadan, we thought it good to give our customers who are on lesser Hajj this value adding offer, so they can spend less on keeping in touch, and have a productive stay. With these special discounted rates, 9mobile clearly has the best roaming offer that meets our customers’ voice and data roaming needs whilst away in Saudi Arabia”, he stated.

Idowu disclosed that, in addition to the discounted voice calls and SMS, prepaid customers will also enjoy data bundles ranging from 100MB to 1GB at very affordable prices thereby staying connected online 24/7.

He said, “The offer is very competitive and there is no access fee applicable before one can enjoy the offer. With free incoming calls upon recharge of N5,000, we believe that we are the network of choice. 9mobile will continue to maintain its commitment to the welfare of its subscribers with the aim of keeping them in touch with their loved ones.”

Since beginning of the year, 9mobile has consistently continued to delight its customers with numerous customer loyalty reward programmes including the just-completed Northern Promo and Magic Hour Promo in which subscribers won and are still winning fantastic prizes such as free airtime, smartphones, cash and brand-new cars.

Motorola Solutions Launches New Device Designed for SMBes in Sub Saharan Africa

Global leader in mission-critical communications, Motorola Solutions, launches a new two-way radio device specially designed for small and medium businesses in Sub Saharan Africa.

The MOTOTRBO™ DP540 two-way radio is built for cost-conscious businesses looking to transition to digital technology for reliable and efficient communications.

As demand for digital radio communication rises, small and medium businesses are looking for simple and affordable solutions for their communication needs without the need to compromise on quality.

MOTOTRBO™ DP540 is the perfect tool for users in need of an entry-level digital radio, offering ease of use and powerful digital-enabled features. The new device, available through certified Motorola Solutions resellers in Sub-Saharan Africa, is based on the ETSI Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Standard, proven worldwide in affordable digital systems with low complexity.

“In today’s economy, small and medium businesses are constantly under pressure to deliver more, and deliver fast, all while keeping a conscious mind on reducing costs,” said Laurent Tribout, director of Motorola Solutions indirect sales for Sub-Saharan Africa. “With this in mind, we’ve developed a communication solution that holds all the necessary features in one affordable device”

Ruggedly Versatile, Digital Out-of-The-Box

One of the risks of migrating from analogue to digital technology is the transition period which can potentially interrupt business operations.

To make this transition smooth and easy, the MOTOTRBO™ DP540 can operate on both digital and analogue modes. In this way, radio users can operate and communicate on their new MOTOTRBO DP540 radios while on the job, as the business transitions to digital technology.

The compact, ruggedly-engineered device is built to withstand harsh conditions and resist corrosion even in the saltiest environments such as seaports and harbours. It boasts superior audio output and unique features, such as voice announcement customization, allowing users to customize the default voice announcement languages using their own audio files.

MOTOTRBO™ DP540 is also built for multi-language working environments, with special audio profiles designed to deliver enhanced audio quality when speaking languages with distinct rolled “R”s such as French or Afrikaans.

Handsfree When Sanitation is Key

As in many mission-critical work areas, healthcare workers rely on two-way radio communication for many of their daily tasks. Whether it’s coordinating patient arrivals, or briefing an ambulance team on the way to a scene. In many circumstances, such as medical staff treating COVID-19 patients, it is not ideal for personnel to be handling their radio devices.

The portfolio of MOTOTRBO devices, including the new DP540 model, is equipped with a Voice-activated Transmit (VOX) feature, which allows users to operate their radio without the need to press the Push-To-Talk (PTT) button. Along with compatible earpieces designed for handsfree operation, healthcare workers and other essential workers can keep their hands free and clean.
