    Internet services here in saudi arabia is very expensive. in Philippines we only pay the equivalent amount of 70 riyals per month unlimited DSL with a speed of 384kbps without paying any ISP. I hope they will still cut the price of 100 riyals per month for the speed of 256kbps.

    Dear Readers

    In Saudi Arabia, due to some particular reasons, Only STC can play a master role in telecom field. Despite other two networks are being here for some years, we found what the result is. Never, it is impossible to make a good stand here by anyone except STC. Due to this reason itself, on the other hand, using this monopoly or arrogance, STC does as they feel. Respecting to Mr. Unni Nair’s reply, it is not a new report among STC customers. In my case, all 28th of each month, STC is deducting 10/-. Although I have been doing a complaint in all possible means at 902 since January-2009, no remedy taken so far. However sometimes I am hearing ugly words too from STC. Finally, I got a message from one agent at 902 to make a complaint to the Kingdom’s Government Capital Control Section. I mean, it reaches to His Highness Kng Abdullah! See, for 10/-, now I have to go to the King’s palace! Anyhow, we wish all the success to STC, let them live though we are no more….

    FOR DSL CONNECTION (at my experience only, no obligation / any accuracy claimed)

    As only the STC is a shelter here in KSA for using internet, we are compelled consume them always. There are some information to get DSL connection:

    If you have a landline connection :

    1. Call 907
    2. Choose Desired Language (Arabic 1, Enghlish 2)
    3. Then Press 2

    Your call will be directed to customer agent. Wait, if you are lucky you will be attended shortly. Again wait…..

    Once after your request received, a technicial will visit you within 2 days. He will do the needful such as installation of new modem and set up.

    Fee :

    Lowest fee is 99/- monthly. You will be offered an unlimited connection. In nutshell, the speed would be only a little better than dial up. No more changes. But as modem is installed, you have to pay additionally 20/- In total, each month you have to pay 119 for this purpose. It is noteworthy that you can access wireless network for your laptop / mobiles if you are beside the STC modem.

    Its not the rates, its the after sales service that depends upon your luck. My STC usb connect had a problem(or so i was told), in granada mall, i was shunted off to an equally “expert” technical person on king abdulaziz road near exit 5. From there I was routed to another office near kingdom tower. Finally some one from STC told me to go back to granada mall. There i met a guy, who is another long suffering customer like me, and he told me to insert my sim in my cell phone and have it reactivated. The people manning the STC kiosk had no clue. Finally I have my internet connection that downloads at a snail’s pace. Next time i will use a carrier pigeon.
