To celebrate UAE’s 47th National Day, the speed is being cranked up on the country’s Wi-Fi.
Internet provider du is giving premium faster Wi-Fi to all residents from Thursday to Monday (29th-3rd December) to mark the occasion. Not to be outdone, UAE telecoms operator Etisalat is offering free access to its ‘UAE Wi-Fi by Etisalat’ network for 10 days, from Friday (30th November) to Sunday, 9th December.
There more than 400 public Wi-Fi hotspots around Dubai; in malls, parks, Metro stations and beaches, so whereever you are, ditch your data and get online faster for free. Perfect for when you’re doing all the totally snappable stuff in our round-up of things to do this long weekend.
Look for the du or Etisalat wifi network on your phone and follow the registration steps by entering your mobile number. You’ll receive a text message with four-digit pin, then tap it in and off you go.
