AT&T STRIKES FIRST MO­BILE SER­VICE DEAL BE­TWEEN IRAN AND US

Capacity - - Middle East -

AT&T has signed an agree­ment with Ira­nian op­er­a­tor Righ­tel to pro­vide voice calls and data ser­vices to cus­tomers in the Is­lamic coun­try.

The agree­ment, the first to have been signed since the US lifted a trade em­bargo with Iran that had been in place since 2012, in an ef­fort to curb the lat­ter’s nu­clear pro­gramme.

In a re­port in the New York Times, a spokesper­son for AT&T ac­knowl­edged that fol­low­ing an agree­ment, the com­pany now pro­vides voice calls and data ser­vices to cus­tomers in Iran.

The coun­try has also been added to the com­pany’s in­ter­na­tional pric­ing charts which show how much a cus­tomer will be charged for ser­vices when trav­el­ling.
