Etisalat has announced the launch of a roaming pack exclusively for its mobile post-paid and prepaid customers, offering unlimited data and voice roaming for AED400 per week.

The UAE-based telco said the new Saudi unlimited pack, valid for 7 days, offers bigger savings on calls and data usage due to very high data and voice allowances for receiving calls, and making outgoing calls to Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Khaled Elkhouly, chief consumer officer, Etisalat, said: “At Etisalat, we understand the value of staying connected with family and friends while travelling abroad. We are pleased to give both our valued post-paid and prepaid customers an unlimited but affordable roaming pack catered to those travelling to Saudi Arabia.”

Fair usage policies apply to this plan to ensure superior service levels to customers with normal usage behaviour, he added.

Data allowance will be 25GB at full speed and unlimited usage at reduced speed, and voice minutes at 2000 minutes for receiving and making outgoing voice calls to the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Voice calls beyond the fair usage limit will be charged at the regular standard rates.
