    Great news! I almost gave up on good internet connection in the UAE because I’m always using bandwidth hungry applications. With such speeds gaming and HD video streaming will be a breeze thanks to du. The let down of this however is the price of each package compared to international rates for such speeds. Please review your prices and all the best!
