Showcased at Gitex and teased till eternity, Etisalat today finally launched the much awaited 4G LTE broadband connection in the country.

The service is available for both new and existing postpaid customers, who must subscribe to Etisalat’s My DataPlan ‘Ultra’ pack bundle to jump on the 100mpbs bandwagon. The ‘Ultra’ pack will offer users 20GB of bandwidth, plus three hours of unlimited usage between midnight to 3am every day.

“We are very excited about introducing the first real 4G (LTE) experience to our customers in the UAE. The launch of the service and USB modems follows user trials that showed exceptionally satisfying performance. Etisalat’s new LTE USB modem, available for free with My DataPlan ‘Ultra’ pack, will give our customers an unparalleled mobile data experience,” said Matthew Willsher, Chief Marketing Officer.

“In coming months, our customers can expect a range of LTE compatible data-centric wireless routers and tablets, and 4G enabled phones, as and when they are available in the market,” added Willsher.

Etisalat says it currently covers almost 70% of the population, and plans to add more stations to cover the entire country “very soon”.

The 4G modem, which costs AED 799 itself, is now available across all Etisalat Business Centers and outlets. Anyone planning to get this?
