The Communication and Information Technology Commission's Governor 'CITC' Eng. Abdullah Al-Dharrab examined STC's readiness and preparations for this year's Hajj season. The governor was accompanied by STC Group CEO Dr. Khaled Al Ghoneim in the tour that assessed STC's network readiness to serve pilgrims.
STC also provided the WiFi service in Hajj ritual sites in Mina, to accommodate more customers and to enable them to browse the Internet at high speed using broadband technology. The company also expanded its network capacity to contain the surge of call traffic, and to further maintain smooth international calling traffic belonging to STC's network and that of other operators, as the company boosted the international link circles to more than 192,000 circles, distributed on 4 international servers.
It is anticipated that this year will witness record numbers of call traffic, including millions of calls to and from Makkah and the Hajj ritual sites, considering the increased number of pilgrims from KSA and abroad, in addition to the completion of the massive infrastructure expansion projects that the Kingdom's government has accomplished.
STC has employed all its capabilities to ensure a smooth pilgrim experience and to facilitate pilgrims' communication with their loved ones, by improving its network capabilities and increasing network capacity in Makkah, Madinah and the Hajj ritual sites, and by employing all its human and technical resources and experience to serve millions of pilgrims and to support public sector Hajj operations.
