Dialog offers data roaming services

Unlimited data roaming is now offered by Dialog Telekom together with TM International Berhard (TMI), the local telecom firm said.

Dialog Telekom, a subsidiary of TMI, said it was offering a daily unlimited data roaming plan at a daily flat fee of US $10. The service allows travellers to use Internet and data browsing services without worrying about data roaming charges. The service intends to cater to the increasing demand of Internet-usage amongst Dialog post-paid roamers.

“As data roaming gains momentum we are taking the opportunity to extend further value to users. Research has shown that Internet access is a growing priority demanded by consumers, so we aim to cater to their needs. The high price of using data services whilst roaming has proven prohibitive for many customers who instead opt to use hotel broadband services as a cheaper alternative,” Supun Weerasinghe, Chief Executive Officer of Dialog Mobile, said in the press release.

The unlimited data roaming plan is offered to all Dialog post-paid customers, whilst international roaming should be activated before departure, users can simply select the preferred roaming partner upon reaching the destination to use this service.
