Choosing the right internet data package in the UAE can be a daunting task, for sure. And all the offers and promotions make it even more confusing.
After the number portability facility announced by TRA (telecom regulatory authority), the users can now switch operators without losing their existing numbers. This has caused operators to generate enticing prepaid and postpaid data bundles to attract more customers.
Etisalat and du -two leading operators in the UAE- are offering multiple mobile data bundles at very reasonable, in fact, cheap internet rates. The user can opt for any suitable data plan by considering the factors like speed limit and data usage policy. These two factors must be taken into consideration when choosing the right data plan for yourself.
