The 6.5GB free data will be offered in a staggered manner, with 500MB activated immediately upon the customer’s first use. The remaining 6GB will be given to the customer over the following six months when recharging with QR50 or above.

The partnership was announced at an event held at the Mi Store in Al Nasr Street in the presence of senior executives from Vodafone Qatar and Intertec Group.

This co-operation with Vodafone Qatar is a great opportunity for Intertec to provide the exciting offer of Vodafone data package to our customers across all sectors in the country.”
