Etisalat extends roaming coverage; Packs start @Dh60

UAE telecom operator Etisalat has extended its network for Business Traveller Packs to 248 operators across 105 countries with no additional cost, it said in a media statement yesterday.

The duration of the Business Traveller Packs range from 30-day one-off packs to monthly recurring packs while pricing starts at Dh60 for 100MB to Dh1,500 for 10 GB, with flexible price points of Dh200 for 500MB and Dh100 for 200MB.

The options include email-only and email-plus-social-media packs, in addition to Internet access for browsing and downloading.

The packs offer business customers the feature to track international data usage during their travel by automatic notifications for better control over roaming spends, assuring worry-free roaming experience, the telco said.

“As the UAE’s local businesses expand their global reach, the frequency of their international travel accelerates. We are keen to help their businesses growth and ensure that executives stay well connected both, locally and overseas,” said Salvador Anglada Chief Business Officer, Etisalat.

“We have expanded our data-roaming network coverage by more than 60 percent at no extra cost to our customers. This means there are many more countries and networks where our customers can surf the web, check emails, use maps and more on their travels, without worrying about bill shocks,” he said.

Increasing adoption of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) operational environment by enterprises and the continuing flux in movement across mobile platforms continues to cause tectonic shifts in usage behaviour.

“There are many small and medium sized businesses (SMB) based in UAE that conduct extensive business abroad. This requires SMB customers to have reliable and best in class data roaming services. The structured Business Traveller pack proposition offers value for money, transparency and predictability of cost and convenience for SMBs,” added John Lincoln, Senior Vice President – Small and Medium Businesses, Etisalat.
