Get connected to the super fast LTE network.


Is your s-l-o——w internet connection giving you the blues? If so, then check out Etisalat’s new LTE WiFi device that connects to their 4G network and creates a Wi-Fi network that allows you to share that connection at home, in your office or on the go. Etisalat claims speeds of up to 30Mbps on Wi-Fi which means that you’re not necessarily getting the full LTE bandwidth. However, that could be a good thing considering the costs associated with LTE at the moment. The 20GB bandwidth plan costs 449 Dirhams per month, however, you get a free pass between 12AM and 3AM meaning any data consumed during that time doesn’t get counted in your monthly usage. So be sure to schedule all your downloading around then. Press release follows

Etisalat announced the launch of its first 4G LTE Mobile WiFi device, bringing its customers the opportunity to enjoy superfast browsing and downloading on the country’s first and widest 4G LTE network.

4G LTE Mobile WiFi is a wireless broadband router that features a light weight (120g), 1.45 inch TFT screen and an 8-10 hours long-lasting battery. The device notifies users of new messages and can save up to 300 messages. The device allows up to 10 users to connect simultaneously to enjoy a high-speed surfing experience at Wifi speeds of up to 30Mbps. Etisalat’s 4G LTE Mobile WiFi is ideal for small and medium organizations as well as for homes due to its high performance and stable connectivity.

Commenting on the new device, Khaled ElKhouly, Chief Marketing Officer at Etisalat, said, “Etisalat continuously seeks to introduce products that optimize the advanced LTE Internet experience. Providing superfast Internet access to up to 10 devices simultaneously, the 4G LTE Mobile WiFi device takes performance standards to a new level that meets our customers’ needs in terms of data usage. Etisalat will continue its efforts to provide solutions that can harness the power of the fourth generation broadband to benefit our various customer segments in the country”.

Customers can purchase the new 4G LTE Mobile Wifi device on a standalone basis at AED799. Etisalat’s new and existing customers can get it for free or at a discounted price when subscribing to My DataPlan ‘Extra’ or ‘Ultra’ packs on a six or twelve months contractual basis.

Designed to meet customers’ needs for data, My DataPlan includes data packs of up to 20GB, bundled with 3 hours of free unlimited Internet usage from midnight to 3 am. Customers can subscribe to My DataPlan packs or purchase the 4G LTE Mobile Wifi device from any Etisalat Business Center or Outlet across the UAE.
