Dubai, May 3, 2012
Etisalat has launched new LTE service packages at LTE Mena 2012 (Dubai), the region’s first conference on LTE – the fourth generation (4G) wireless technology.
As the strategic operator partner of the event, Etisalat’s participation featured top management key note speeches and the launch of value-packed LTE USB modem offers.
Etisalat has extended the LTE service offering by making the LTE-compatible USB modems available to customers subscribing to My DataPlan ‘Plus’, ‘Extra’ or ‘Ultra’ pack bundles.
Customers can choose and enjoy the LTE super-speed of up to 100Mbps for free or for competitive monthly rentals on any My DataPlan pack, subscribed on a six or 12 months contract, an Etisalat statement said. For a limited time, customers can also buy the standalone LTE USB modem at Dh599, enjoying a 25 per cent discount from Dh799 offered at launch in December 2011.
Based on customer’s data requirements, My DataPlans offer the most competitive data bundles, including the ‘Ultra’ pack which provides the UAE’s largest data allowance of 20GB. In addition, customers get free hours of unlimited Internet usage and downloading from midnight to 3 am every day on every pack, said the statement.
Speaking at the event, Etisalat’s senior vice president for mobile networks, said: “Etisalat’s LTE network is capable of providing customers with a transformational mobile broadband experience. Starting with value-packed offerings on the LTE USB modems, Etisalat is working its way up to provide customers with more LTE devices, such as tablets and voice enabled smartphones, by the third or fourth quarter of this year. Customers will soon be able to enjoy more devices and services options on our network.” – TradeArabia News Service
