Enhanced mobile broadband service to offer greater download cap for Etisalat customers
Etisalat announced today an increase in bandwidth caps and decrease in cost of their 3.5G mobile broadband service. Customers currently using their 400MB per month package (AED 495 per month) and 1GB package (AED 995 per month) will automatically be upgraded to a 100GB service for AED 460 per month.
Any new Etisalat customers will have the same access to this special offer, which is to run until the 19th of May. Beyond that the cap will decrease to 10GB. To get the most out of this service Etisalat recommend their customers buy a Mobile Data USB modem for AED 850 from one of their business centers and outlets, which can provide downstream speeds of up to 7.2 megabits per second.
Essa Al Haddad, chief marketing officer, Etisalat, said: "We are confident that many of our customers will see the immense value in our new service, which is available to both prepaid Wasel and postpaid customers alike."
