Ooredoo is reporting a surge in the number of international calls made in January 2015, driven by the popularity of its latest Hala Top-Up promotion as well as the high number of visitors in town.

In December, Ooredoo launched a new promotion for Hala, Qatar's most popular prepaid service, which enables customers to use the free bonus Ooredoo local minutes they get when the top-up for international calls also.

Customers enjoy up to 120 local Ooredoo minutes when they top-up their Hala account with QR 30 and above. With this current promotion, Hala customers can now use these local Ooredoo minutes for up to two hours’ worth of international calls also.

The call minutes, which are added based upon the amount that customers top-up for, are valid for ten days. Each denomination enables different amounts of bonus minutes, with top-ups of QR 200 earning two hours’ call time.

The Hala top-up promotion is valid until 15 March 2015.

Qatar has seen a high number of international visitors in January, drawn by major sporting events such as the 24th Men’s World Handball Championships and Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2015. Ooredoo sponsored both events, and had a presence at each to enable visitors to purchase Hala services and Mobile Broadband for the Internet.

Hala services are designed to be easy to sign-up for, with all new customers enjoying 250 local Ooredoo call minutes and 250MB data valid for seven days, as well as a three months free subscription to the Hala International Saver Key.
