Etisalat launches daily unlimited data for AED 5

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."

Genesis G70 arrives in the Middle East

Genesis has officially launched its compact G70 luxury sedan in Middle East markets, completing the brand’s core sedan lineup. Engineered as a dynamic car with strong appeal to younger customers and more enthusiastic drivers, the G70 joins the flagship G90 large sedan and mid-sized G80 and G80 Sport.

“Genesis has been very well received in the Middle East, and the Genesis G70 will be an exciting new chapter in our story,” said Altar Yilmaz, Genesis general manager for the Africa and Middle East region. “For many of our potential customers, this is the Genesis they have been waiting for.”

The arrival of the Genesis G70 in showrooms follows a previous display presentation at the Dubai International Motor Show in November 2017, where Genesis fielded a large number of inquiries about the car. With larger G80 and G90 models already growing a strong base of loyal customers, it is expected the compact model will add significantly to the brand’s appeal in the competitive Middle East luxury car market.

The G70 showcases the future direction of the Genesis brand’s “Athletic Elegance” design identity. 

“The G70’s interior is configured to prioritize an excellent user experience, with superb fit and finish throughout. The interior packaging reflects simplicity, with an emphasis on genuine functionality instead of gimmickry. A horizontal layout brings a sense of stability, with an intuitively laid-out switchgear and a comfortable, assertive sport steering wheel,” the carmaker said.

The G70 offers two powertrains in the Middle East region — a 3.3-liter V6 petrol turbo and 2.0-liter I4 petrol turbo.  The Lambda II 3.3-liter V6 turbo GDI engine is the heart of the enthusiast-focused G70 Sport, with 370 ps and maximum torque of 52.0 kg.m (510 N.m) 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 270 km/h.
