Arguably Saudi Telecom Company – STC is the leading Telcom Company in KSA with wide coverage across. I have been using it since I landed here in early 2010. Wherever I have traveled, it never disappoints me. It is actually not limited to KSA but across the border in the MENA region also.
Although it is a bit costly than other of its competitors like Zain, Mobily, etc., it’s worthwhile to travel across KSA quite often as coverage issues are with other operators. Sometimes I do use Zain and Mobily also for internet services as I may get cheap.
