There’s no doubt Wataniya Airways was a favourite to most. On June 30th voting will take place in “الجمعية العمومية” to decide whether Wataniya Airways would resume its services or not. Everytime I see the sign on 50 road telling me to take a right if you want to go to Wataniya Airways I remember how great it was having it around.
As I have previously mentioned number portability will take place on June 15th. According to the CEO of Viva, Salman Al-Badran all telecoms have dropped the KD 5 fee. Instead, each telecom will end up paying that fee for the user. I did a poll a week back and so far it looks like many will be switching to Viva.[Source]
It’s on everyone’s mind and being able to switch telecoms while keeping your number will be doable very soon (June 15th has been confirmed by multiple sources). I for one can’t wait to switch to another telecom. I think it’s pretty obvious the biggest gainer of all 3 will be the one with the cheapest offers.
