Etisalat vs du mobile tariff wars 'cannot continue'
Etisalat offers prepaid Wasel customers international calls for 0.4 fils per second
First off all we thanks to Du company who introduce in UAE Other wise Etisalat will never reduce local &i International call charges But still they charge more then india for using Internet or 3G services In india Airtel charge 670 MB for Dhs 7 and here 40 MB for 20 Dhs Still they feel company running in loss

Please consider the monthly E-life charges also

UAE prices cannot be compared with Indian prices. In India purchasing power is poor compared to UAE. Salaries in UAE are much higher than in India and most other countries. Etisalat and Du also need to pay such salaries and pay high for other services. Automatically they need to charge higher prices than India.

i switched to Du from eti with same mobile no from 050 - 055 after 16 years as i find monthly rental of dh 50 unsuitable as there are additional charges & deposit when roaming outside uae.....Du does not charge except the roaming fee..

I guess its time to switch to DU... Etisalat got Very poor services and alot of hidden charges....

Etisalat & Du is still charging high compare to other countries like india. If you look in to other sevices like internet (e-life) it is very high. one month charge is equal to 6 months internet bill in india.

Etisalat pices are not the cheapest. you need to consider the setup fee. for a minute call etisalat will cost 24+100 fils ie. 1.24 AED. while du will cost 30+50 fils ie. 80 fils per minute.

I already switch from Etisalt to DU, due to Etisalat's poor customer service and hidden charges.

competition is healthy, depends how healthy its for the company. if Vodafone had been in this market. then DU and Etisalat would know what is run for the money. marketing is all about understand the needs of the end users and providing quality service. its basis simple rules.
