Company said it hopes to help businesses grow with new speeds

Etisalat upgrades broadband speeds for business customers for free

Etisalat has doubled the broadband speeds for its business customers in the UAE at no extra cost.

The speeds have boosted the broadband speed by 2.5 times – a business customer with 4MBps speed will be automatically upgraded, free of charge, to 10MBps broadband speed.

New business customers will also enjoy the benefits of higher speeds at lower rates.

Salvador Anglada, chief business officer at Etisalat said the free upgrade is aimed at helping businesses grow.

“The double speed upgrade is our promise and commitment to make our technology work for you and grow your business, allow you to do more and stand out from your competition,” said Anglada.

“Among other benefits, Etisalat’s speed upgrades on its fixed-line network will provide faster and extremely reliable fixed-line Internet connection, ensuring increased efficiencies, better global connectivity, reduced costs and improved customer service, resulting in increased profitability,” he added.

Etisalat - I'm not sure I should consider this very good - as I would think that it would be more beneficial over all to extend this benefit to retail customers first. Infact, businesses are able to pay for their services and a reliable broadband internet access remains an expensive deal here for the common man.
