Saturday, October 15, 2005


This weeks issue of Waseet had 6 Full page adds by Fastlink, last week they were 7. pages that are too simple too clear too blue and too many other bad things. (just for the record I hate fastlink <-- not using capitals on purpose!) I hate their green and blue, i hate thier 7th circle building, I hate monopoly, I even hate scrabble, but most of all i hate thier over polite slaves on the other end of the phone. Now back to the Waseet, whats with the "PLEASE SAY YOU SAW IT IN AL WASEET"? please, pleeeeeeeease I beg of you oh thy weekly reader. say it, please dont say you saw it in Mumtaz, No No NOoooOOo Please.. ok enough now, back to work

Not so much of a rant, think of it as a calm but very confirmed thought, I don't like Fastlink for so many reasons, the main ones are 1. They over underestimate the locals 2. They don't give back to the Prepaid customers.

I'm not aware of any mobile coompany in the middle east, I had my cellphone shop in the states and I know alot about Mobile companies in the states but nothing about Fast link.
WHen you say give back to prepaid customers, what do you mean by that? can you give examples? and if possible other companies who are giving better offers to prepaid customers.
And what did you mean by underestimate the locals?
Ma3lesh ana out of the picture, my question are for research purposes only.

Siyamon Maqbool.

I dislike FastLink as well. I think they overprice their mediocre services.
I do not have a fastlink number at the present moment but I have to get one for work. Good thing I won't be paying for it, I don't want those people taking my money.

I find Waseet's little request to be cute, actually. It is smart, no doubt about that.

Well i cant understand wich advertising agency behind these adds (waseet) PLEASE SAY U SAW AT AL WASEET, (Al ghad news paper) 3AINAK 3AL GHAD,(Al quds college) 3EIN EL 3AQEL, (Finance and export bank) QARD ABU SORA, i belive they have something in common and they are using jordanian humorestic marketing approach :-) Respect

To them it's just business, an art of making ads, the purpose is always to make better profit, doesn't matter what approach they take to make that happen... perhaps that what Sabri meant when he said "They over underestimate the locals"

I personally never used any but Fastlink, not going to change unless there's a good reason too do so!

I recall them using this Verse from the Quran last year, when they wanted to promote the free meals they provided in Ramadan.
ويطعمون الطعام على حبه مسكينا ويتيما واسيرا انما نطعمكم لوجه الله لا نريد منكم جزاء ولا شكورا
, isnt that underestimating the Locals as well.
