A Saudi court has ordered the local telecoms regulator to overturn a ban on a free roaming services that were offered by the operator Mobily.
The court also ordered Saudi’s Communication and Information Technology Commission (CITC) to lift a SAR500,000 fine it imposed on Mobily for continuing to offer its free service, Arab News reported.
The decision came three years after Mobily took CITC to court over its decision to ban local service providers, which also include Zain and STC, from offering customers free roaming services.
CITC has not commented on the results yet, but it is understood that the regular will be allowed to appeal against the decision.
