Saudi Arabia’s third cellular licensee, Saudi Zain, has signed an agreement to use the national 2G and 3G networks of rival operator Mobily while it rolls out its own infrastructure. In a statement, Mobily said that it welcomes all competition, adding that it believes that Zain’s presence in Saudi Arabia will add value to the national telecoms market, with the consumer being the ultimate winner, MENAFN reports. Saudi Zain is expected to launch later this year. The financial terms of the roaming deal were not disclosed.
