Accessing internet applications just got easier for enthusiastic shoppers in Abu Dhabi with the new rollout of WiFi UAE at Marina Mall.

With this move, Marina Mall visitors will now have access to seamless, secure, and safe connectivity to the Internet through the choice of either free or premium WiFi.

By logging on to WiFi UAE using a UAE mobile, shoppers can choose between the two options – for Internet access to browse, chat, and social applications.
