Islamic Bank offers mobile banking

The Islamic Bank in Jordan has started offering mobile banking services for customers using the Fastlink network.

SMS Banking offers clients any information relating to their bank accounts, including transactions and standing balances, as well as news alerts and marketing messages about their bank.

A total of 14 banking services can be carried out over customers' mobile phones.

Fastlink data services manager, Ziad Masri, said Fastlink has established partnership agreements with seven financial institutions in Jordan since the mobile banking service was first introduced.

Fastlink was the first provider in the Middle East to offer such services and continues to strike similar deals with other banks operating in Jordan.

The company is part of the MTC Group, the largest mobile operator in the Middle East and parts of Africa, and boasts the largest mobile customer base in Jordan.
