This strategic partnership was signed by Zeyad AL Masri, Zain’s Information Services Manager, and Thamer AL Odwan, Khaberni CEO.
“The signing of this partnership comes due to the dramatic increase in news volume and the accelerating sequence of events taking place in the region and globally; hence Zain has committed itself to keeping its customers updated with the latest local and regional news by signing an agreement with Khaberni to launch Khaberni mobile service, which provides trusted and unbiased news,” Al Masri stated.
Khaberni is considered a changing force to the way online news is presented to the reader, as the website aggregates young professional Jordanian columnists who have no hidden political agenda.
Al Odwan commented on the importance of the agreement to Khaberni as it illustrates clearly that the web-based news provider has been very successful in placing itself among the leading news providers in a very short period.
“We are very pleased in Khaberni to sign this agreement, which presents a land mark in our strife for providing reliable, up-to-date and non-partisan service, with a major telecommunications company in the region. This exclusive news service to Zain subscribers acts as a catalyst for improving the quality of news provided through mobile phones, and demonstrates the unique position of Khaberni in the Jordanian market,” said Al Odwan.
Khaberni mobile service includes other contents available on Khaberni website such as sports, caricature, technology, global news, and current issues, to enable Zain customers from receiving a varied content either via SMS or MMS by using designated codes.
