Dubai: UAE telecom operator du is revising its WiFi package options, offering residents a chance to enjoy high-speed internet connection for as low as Dh10.
The company announced on Thursday that, in line with the revamp, it will be running a three-month promotion on its WiFi offering and users will not just get the chance to pay less, they can enjoy short-term duration packages for internet usage.
Instead of just having options for three days or seven days of WiFi access, users can sign up for one day, three days or ten days. The telecom operator said this will offer more flexibility, especially for tourists who are staying in the UAE on a very short period.
New pricing options
Users will pay Dh10 for four hours of WiFi over the course of one day. Those who opt to browse online or have access to the internet for 12 hours over three days, they can pay Dh25.For those who want to have WiFi access for a total of 32 hours over ten days, the charge will be Dh50.
Du said the revamp is geared towards meeting the needs of different users and supporting the emirate’s goal of making Dubai a smart city
“With these new pricing options, customers will be getting better value for their money, as they will be able to connect for more hours per dirham, while also having the option to opt for the smaller value purchase,” du said in a statement
“This revamp will help users get the most out of their WiFi by enabling video streaming, social media and media-rich browsing experience. This will mean a better value for the customer, and will better match their individual needs.”
Jihad Tayara, vice president for business development and partnerships at du clarified that their free WiFi will continue to offer “reliable internet connection” and will not be affected by the revamp.
“But now users will have the choice to benefit from flexible WiFi packages which will offer high-speed internet access for all of their online needs,” Tayara said.
Users can opt to pay using their credit card or du recharge card.
