du offers cheaper international roaming rates



Dubai: As the mad rush for the spring and summer travel season is about to get under way, residents in the UAE are being enticed with attractive international roaming rates.

Shortly after etisalat announced that it is cutting its rates for UAE travellers, du said on Tuesday that it is offering new data roaming rates for as low as Dh35 per day or Dh200 per week.

The new rates are up for grabs for both individual and business customers and are designed to help travellers save money on high roaming charges. And by availing themselves of the offer, travellers will no longer need to scramble to change their SIM or search for free WiFi while abroad.



Travellers can sign up for a weekly roaming plan for Dh200 and enjoy 2.5 GB of data, just enough for making sure those holiday photos and videos are uploaded or shared immediately while outside the UAE.

For those who are travelling on shorter periods, users can sign up for a 500 MB data per day for Dh35, while residents who will be away for about a month have the option to get a 6GB data allowance for Dh500.

There is also a VIP package offering 15 GB for Dh1,000.

Etisalat announced on Monday that it is reducing some of its international roaming rates by as much as 29 per cent.
