Etisalat announced on Monday that it has further reduced its roaming rates for voice calls, SMS and data.

Etisalat’s prepaid and post-paid customers can now enjoy discounted roaming rates of up to 29 percent on data, outgoing voice calls to UAE, GCC and local destinations and outgoing SMS while traveling to any Gulf Cooperation Council countries through any roaming partner.

The new rates are introduced in coordination with the Telecom Regulatory Authority (TRA) to encourage roaming services within the GCC at affordable rates.

For even bigger savings, Etisalat said its customers can also choose to subscribe to any of its data and combo roaming packages, offering non-stop roaming data usage in more than 100 countries for as low as AED35 per day.

Etisalat has an extensive coverage of almost 730 international outbound roaming networks in 213 countries. To enhance customer’s data experience, Etisalat expanded its 4G LTE partners to 291 networks in over 120 countries.
