AMMAN, Jordan -- Zain and Palestine Communications Group (Paltel) announce the launch of the groundbreaking ‘One Network’ service between Jordan and Palestine, serving over 4 million mobile customers in both countries. ‘One Network’ provides all Zain customers to be billed as local clients for voice and data services and receive free incoming calls when traveling to any country covered by the Zain network. The move will see Paltel’s mobile service, Jawwal, join the service initially on February 1, 2010 with Zain Jordan only at this stage and eventually it is planned to expand the connection to all other 22 Zain ‘One Network’ countries across the Middle East and Africa.

The memorandum of understanding was signed in the presence of Jordan’s Minister of Information and Communication Technology HE Marwan Jumaa, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners, and CEO of the Jordanian Telecommunications Regulatory Commission, Ahmad Hiasat, Zain Group CEO Dr. Saad Al Barrak, Chairman of Paltel Group Sabeeh al-Masri, CEO of Zain Jordan Dr. Abdel-Malek Al-Jaber, Paltel Group acting CEO Kamal Abu-Khadijeh, Jawwal General Manager Ammar al-Eker and a number of senior Zain Jordan Executives.

Dr. Al-Barrak described ‘One Network’ as an unstoppable reality in the world of telecommunications. “Once again, we are redefining the notion of mobile telecommunication coverage, making roaming services accessible to all. In doing so, we are fulfilling our brand promise of ‘A wonderful world’.”
