Thuraya Telecommunications Company yesterday announced that it has extended its GSM roaming coverage to 11 additional countries across the Americas in partnership with leading telecommunications providers, Claro and Telefonica.

A subsidiary of America Movil, Claro is the leading provider of telecommunications services in Latin America, operating in 18 countries across the Americas.

Telefonica operates across 14 countries in Latin America and manages, through its Movistar and Vivo, commercial brands, more than 30% of the region's telecommunications market.

Thuraya's partners will provide GSM roaming for voice and data services to Thuraya users in Alaska, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and Uruguay.

The roaming service, which commenced on April 12, 2013, allows Thuraya subscribers to roam seamlessly on the Claro and Telefonica networks.

Thuraya users can insert their Thuraya SIM card in any GSM or Smartphone to access Claro or Telefonica's networks. In return, Claro and Telefonica subscribers will shortly be able to roam across Thuraya's satellite network when using a Thuraya satellite handset. With these new roaming agreements in place, Thuraya now provides truly global coverage for its customers with its wide satellite coverage and in over 161 countries across 356 GSM networks throughout Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, Latin America and North America. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
