Abu Dhabi – MENA Herald: Etisalat launched its new and first-of-its kind Unlimited GCC Data Pack for a limited period,  offering unlimited data access to its mobile customers traveling throughout the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. For as low as AED 35 per day, Etisalat’s customers can chat, surf the Internet and stay connected with their business, friends and families back home as much as they like.

Customers need to activate the pack just once and start using their unlimited data allowance for just AED 35 a day. The validity starts from customers’ first usage abroad and the pack auto renews only upon subsequent usage after 24 hours, saving customers the hassle of having to re-subscribe each time they want to use mobile data while roaming in the GCC. The special rate will automatically apply on each new day of usage, thereby optimising customer spends on roaming with Etisalat. The unlimited roaming data allowance can be used  by all of Etisalat’s post-paid and prepaid customers, across all networks in the GCC countries. Etisalat points out that customers will not have to select preferred networks and can roam fearlessly an any mobile network within GCC region with unlimited data on hand. .

Salvador Anglada , Chief Business  Officer, Etisalat, said, “We are excited to launch this new promotion, giving our customers unlimited data access to enjoy worry-free business or leisure travel to any of the GCC nations. It is a first in the UAE, exclusively for Etisalat’s consumers and business customers.

“Our research pointed out that a third of our roaming customers travel within the GCC. Our promotion caters to the demand of this huge segment, which seeks simple-to-use and affordably priced roaming pack that helps them stay connected to their work and home while traveling. The combination of an extremely pocket-friendly price, an auto renewal feature and multiple country usage translates into a lot more savings and convenience for our roaming customers”, Anglada added.
