Arabian Gulf - Mobile call prices fall

Mobile call rates to drop up to 20% in Gulf

Mobile phone rates in the Middle East may drop up to 20% this year due to rising competition, technological innovation, and declining project costs, Ghassan Hasbani, vice-president, Booz & Company, told Gulf Times. The mobile customer base in the Gulf region was expected to grow between 5% and 10% in 2009 despite the global economic downturn, he noted. The number of mobile customers in the Gulf region is now estimated at about 45 million, he added.
