As the annual holiday season approaches, the Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) has issued tips to telecom consumers in Qatar to avoid roaming bill shocks.
The two service providers in Qatar have a diverse range of roaming packages and services to cater to a range of consumer requirements. The CRA advises telecom consumers to make sure they understand the service they want to use before they subscribe to it, to verify if whether their service provider offers a roaming package in the destination country, and to read the terms and conditions related to the specific service they want to use and clearly understand the cost of it.
The CRA also advises consumers to understand the activation process before they travel and if in doubt to contact their service provider to clarify and to activate the package before they reach their destination because they may need to use roaming data to activate the package and could be charged ‘out of package’ for that if it is not activated in advance.
