Etisalat announced on Sunday the launch of two high speed BusinessOne broadband packages, 8 and 16 MB, for business customers in the UAE.

The launch of these two packages would effectively quadruple the broadband speeds available for small and medium businesses (SMBs), a press release from Etisalat said. The packages would also provide such businesses several value added features, it added.

With the addition of these two new packages, there are now altogether eight BusinessOne offerings available for both single and multiple user businesses.

According to Etisalat, the packages provided businesses with multiple, personalised email accounts, high speed Internet access, secure connectivity and a web presence. Customers could also get their own domain names, with the websites being hosted by Etisalat.

Another benefit of using the package was its ease of installation, which ruled out the need for any external IT resource, the release said.

The packages also provided customers with antivirus and firewall applications along with access to the Norton Internet Security licences, the release added.

Commenting on the launch of the packages, Abdulla Hashim, senior vice president, business solutions, Etisalat, said that the provision of high speed broadband packages to customers was “in line with Etisalat’s overall objective of raising the standards of broadband infrastructure in the UAE by providing universal access to a world class high speed broadband network”.

According to the Business Monitor International, the total number of internet users in the UAE is expected to reach 3.77 million by 2013, while broadband subscriptions are expected to cross 1.1mn.
