Etisalat starts region's first HD voice network
Dubai, June 1, 2013
UAE's leading telecommunications company, Etisalat said starting from July1, its eLife and standalone landline subscribers will enjoy free national calls across the UAE to landline telephones in addition to the free local calls that they already enjoy.
The telecom major also launched the region’s first High Definition (HD) voice for eLife landlines. By July, Etisalat will release a lineup of HD telephones to support this new innovation.
The eLife is based on Next Generation Fiber Optic Technology which capitalizes on Etisalat’s superior telecom infrastructure, enabling a better customer experience through high-quality services and ability to service increasingly higher number of subscribers.
Rashed Al Abbar, the VP of Home Services, Etisalat, said: "As a tribute to our nation’s great leaders and to the spirit of unity in our country that binds all residents, we launched this new service for home customers across all emirates."
"UAE residents can enjoy free-of-charge calls with advanced HD quality when they call any landline number. This new service will be available to all customers for calls made from their home to any other landline telephone within the UAE.”
On the HD Voice feature, Al Abbar said: “We are also excited about the new High Definition Voice feature. Just like HD TV transformed customers’ experience, High Definition Voice will alter the customer call experience forever.”
"All eLife customers will automatically avail the free national calls and the HD voice quality without any change in monthly rental charges.
The charge for standalone landline customers, who are not elife subscribers, will be revised to Dh39 ($10.6) per month," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
