Vodafone Qatar today launched, Vodafone Falla, the country’s first ever telecom plan appealing to the youth with great mobile deals, exciting activities and direct youth engagement. Falla is a Qatari expression that means enjoying the moment. Falla is the feeling Vodafone wants to create with young people in Qatar.
Giving the opening note, Vodafone Qatar’s CEO, Mr Kyle Whitehill said this year would be full of game changers referring to the tremendous success of the Company’s last Red Postpaid launch.
