NY eve du telephone traffic up 198%

Call traffic on the du telecom network rocketed 198 per cent during the peak hours of the New Year's eve celebrations.

Mobile traffic volume in the Burj Khalia area shot up 205 per cent obviously due to the massive rush of merry-makers who arrived to witness the fireworks that ushered in 2011.

"We are proud of this moment since it reflects our efforts and success in consolidating an ultra-efficient cutting-edge mobile network, meaning we can offer our customers reliable communication services even during periods of high volume network traffic, including holidays and special occasions such as Eid Al Fitr, Eid Al Adha and New Year's Eve. Indeed, despite this tremendous traffic increase, we maintained our high-quality network, mainly owing to the latest technologies deployed, as well as our continuous efforts to obtain perfect network parameter settings and take other steps to cater to such traffic," said Hatem Bamatraf, SVP Network Development, du.
