“We are very pleased to see such positive feedback from our customers. They are enjoying calls to their family and friends with all the additional free minutes within an hour. Due to the popularity and requests to extend the promotion, we’ve decided to add another month to ‘5 Minutes in 1 Hour.’ We listen to our customers and want to provide the best services for them,” said Mr Takashi Nagashima, CEO of MPT-KSGM Joint Operations.

Promotion mechanics, terms and conditions will remain the same as before when Swe Thahar user makes a phone call.
