TECOM Investments has announced a new deal with du, the UAE telecoms operator to offer a WiFi service in public areas of Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City and Knowledge Village starting this April.
To begin with the new WiFi coverage will include food courts, lobbies and select offices and villas, but TECOM intends to extend this until it’s available in all outdoor public spaces within the free zone clusters.
du will be providing the technology and support required in setting up the new wireless local area networks.
Abdullatif Al Mulla, CEO of TECOM Investments, said: “Staying connected is vital for today’s business in an increasingly technology-driven world. It is imperative we provide the necessary infrastructure to our visitors, business partners and students, and help them communicate in the most convenient manner.”
du already has WiFi installations in Starbucks outlets in the Dubai free zones, and more at Dubai Festival City, Times Square Centre and the Dubai World Trade Centre.For all the latest tech news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
