Etisalat offers 8 new roaming packages
Abu Dhabi, July 7, 2014
Etisalat, a leading telecommunication services provider in the UAE, has launched eight new data roaming Business Traveler Packs, allowing customers the flexibility to choose from 30-day one-off packs to monthly recurring plans.
The new plans are an extension to Etisalat’s competitive business data packs launched last year, making Etisalat’s portfolio of business data roaming options the widest in the country.
John Lincoln, senior vice president - Small and Medium Businesses at Etisalat said: “Etisalat’s international packs are in alignment with Etisalat’s on-going strategy to offer value-packed packages to SMB and enterprise customers. The Business Traveler Packs have been consciously built to provide seamless connectivity to empower the UAE businesses to engage confidently with the world.”
Usage-specific access and high data allowances are built into Etisalat’s new international data packs. The options include email-only and email-plus-social-media packs, in addition to Internet access for browsing and downloading.
“The average trip of a roaming customer extends over four days and there are several trips in the same month. Hence, the need for month-long roaming packs is acutely felt. Most of our new roaming packs do not have binding contracts unlike other similar packages in the market,” Lincoln added.
Customers need to choose any of the newly introduced international data monthly bundles to have full control of their business communications and to connect to the world beyond business. The new packs range from 100MB at Dh60 ($16.33) to 10GB at Dh1500, with price points of Dh200 for 500MB and Dh100 for 200MB.
For better control over roaming spends, the packs offer customers the facility to track international data usage during their travel.
“International roaming costs are a worldwide issue because of the prices that networks charge each other and the impact of which on our customers is huge. At Etisalat UAE, we are determined to minimize global roaming bill shock problems and make sure our business customers can simply enjoy their business trips like holidays,” Lincoln concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
