JEDDAH: Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has announced it will provide 1GB free for every pilgrim who uses its prepaid services as a gift to pilgrims during this year’s Hajj season.

The gift is aimed at facilitating their experience during Hajj on the day of Tarwiya and Arafat, as part of an initiative organized by the Saudi Ministry of Communications and Information Technology and the Communications and Information Technology Commission.

STC Chairman, Nasser bin Sulaiman Al-Nasser, explained that the company’s gift came as a result of instructions from King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to all governmental and private bodies related to the service of pilgrims.
