Etisalat launches new roaming packages
Dubai, June 18, 2013
Etisalat, a leading telecoms operator in the region, has launched new weekly and monthly roaming packages for voice and data usage for customers in UAE to meet the demands of subscribers travelling abroad.
UAE subscribers have the option of choosing roaming packages valid for a day, week or month, to match their duration of stay and travel profile.
Offering significant discounts on typically high costs of roaming, the new packages provide travelers the opportunity to use data for as little as Dh25 ($6.8) per day and receive calls starting from Dh0.5 per minute.
The Traveler Pack offers a combination of 1GB of data and 1,000 incoming voice minutes valid for a month and costs Dh500.
Subscriber can use voice allowance in all roaming destinations, while data allowance can be used through any of Etisalat’s preferred partners across 143 networks in 70 countries covering major travelling destinations.
Khaled El Khouly, chief marketing officer, Etisalat said: “Etisalat has always strived to provide high quality of services and encourage customers to make better use of their mobile devices, in line with a vision of a data-driven future for telecommunications.”
“The new announcement proves that we are constantly innovating and launching roaming services that offer coverage at a competitive price. We have also expanded our network of partners outside of UAE to offer better network and pass on discounts to our customers.
“Subscribers also have the option of choosing from standalone packages. However, the new bundle will provide more value for money, flexibility of options and convenient validity time,” he added.
Etisalat has also introduced flat rates for all outgoing roaming calls for prepaid and post-paid connections, broken up into three zones. – TradeArabia News Service
