Taiwan Mobile\'s OK prepaid phone cards have been a preferred choice of Thai workers when calling home from Taiwan.
In celebration of the birthday of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Taiwan Mobile is offering users of the OK prepaid cards the special weekend rate of NT$4.8 per minute. Just dial 006. The big discount for the long-distance calls to Thailand brings the price down to lower than 30 percent of the regular rate.
To show appreciation for continued patronage by the Thai workers, Taiwan Mobile has been generally very supportive of activities in the Thai communities. Festivals like the Songkhran, the ancient Thai New Year or the water festival, as well as the Loi Krathong, a festival which sees lights and lanterns transform night into day, have received the support of Taiwan Mobile through sponsorship. Taiwan Mobile, in fact, is always a major sponsor.
Taiwan Mobile also picked up the bill for printing informative handbooks on the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in the Thai language at the height of the epidemic. It also financed the printing of a primer to help Thai workers get to know the rules for a law-abiding and happy stay in Taiwan.
