Vodafone Slashes Calling Rate To Japan
13 March 2011: In light of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan over the weekend, Vodafone Qatar announced today that the international calling rate to Japan will be cut to 44 Dhs/min. The new rate will be effective as of midnight 13th of March, and is effective until Saturday, the 19th of March.
Vodafone would also like to point out to customers that there has been extensive damage to the Japanese mobile and fixed line phone networks, and that it may be difficult to initially connect to users in that country.
"Our hearts and prayers go out to the Japanese people," said John Tombleson, Acting CEO of Vodafone Qatar. "We hope that we have made it easier for customers in Qatar to check up on friends and family in Japan after this shocking catastrophe."
