Following broadband speed upgrades of 2.5 times for nearly 100,000 business customers at no extra cost last year on September 14, 2014, UAE telco Etisalat announced today that it will boost broadband up to another 50 per cent and provide 200 free voice minutes for its customers subscribed to fixed business bundled propositions, at no extra cost.

The firm said that, as part of the upgrade, BusinessSuper customers earlier subscribed to fixed line broadband only can opt in for higher speeds and enjoy 200 free voice minutes when they subscribe to the recently launched Business Quick Start propositions.

Etisalat said its broadband speed boost and free voice minutes offer provide SMBs huge savings and increase their operational efficiencies.

“We believe in the growth potential of the country’s SMB landscape. We are dedicated to empower this segment by providing the necessary tools and technologies that equip these businesses for a digital transformation,” said Salvador Anglada, Chief Business Officer, Etisalat.

“We are certain that with the market’s most competitively priced broadband speeds and all-in-one bundled plans that we offer, our business customers will save big and benefit hugely in the long term.”

The UAE’s booming economy and business environment provides ideal conditions for entrepreneurs and start-ups to foster and grow in. High-speed broadband connectivity, reduced upfront investments and transparent communication costs are crucial requirements for increased business productivity and profitability.

Etisalat’s latest broadband speed boost comes within less than six months of its more-than-double speed upgrades for business customers.

“Our constant service upgrades, speed boosts and service additions, backed by our investment in advanced technologies is a reflection of our efforts and commitment to help businesses in the UAE grow,” said John Lincoln, Senior Vice President - SMB, Etisalat.

“Our one-stop-shop business solutions deliver everything that an SMB needs from one service provider. Up to 50 per cent broadband speed boost aims to take their business to places that no one else can. Such enablement through low cost and high return services is, in a way, also an expression of our gratitude for the trust they place in us.”
