Etisalat, the country's leading telecommunications operator, announced the launch of the UAE's first unlimited daily and 100 MB weekly data plans for new and existing Wasel prepaid mobile customers. The new plans, which will be available from Monday (Sept. 10), give more choice and control to mobile Prepaid Internet users. As part of Etisalat's commitment to offer better value to its customers, the newly announced plans are priced at an affordable daily rate of AED 5 for an unlimited data plan and AED 20 for a generous 100 MB weekly data plan.
Etisalat has also reduced the monthly Plan and Pack charges to a lower monthly rate of AED 99 instead of AED 145 for 1GB data and AED 249 instead of AED 295 for 5 GB data. Data usage out of bundle rates for 100 MB weekly or 1GB/5GB monthly plans are 1 AED/1MB.
Designed for customers who want peace of mind from seamless data usage, each of the daily, weekly and monthly prepaid data plans provide customers with the hassle-free auto-renewal feature to save time and effort. These new plans offer market-leading value for money and an enhanced Internet experience. New subscribers will commence their new plan period from the first time they connect to the Internet. Once the initial subscription expires, automatic renewal will occur from the next time the customer accesses the Internet.
Khaled El Khouly, chief marketing officer at Etisalat, said, "People in the UAE are increasingly consuming the Internet using their smart phone devices or tablets for surfing the Web and staying in touch with friends or colleagues through emails, messengers or social networking sites. The new price points for the daily and weekly plans make data affordable for everyone to use to their desired content."
