DUBAI 4 April 2018: Following close on the heels of a reduction in roaming rates by Etisalat, Du has now announced New Data Roaming Bundles, available for both individual and business customers.
Du customers who purchase a weekly roaming plan for just Dh200 will receive 2.5 GB. Away for less than a week – 500 MB per day is available from Dh35. For those travelling for longer, there is the monthly 6 GB allowance at Dh500 or the VIP package offering 15 GB for Dh1,000.
“At Du, we provide our customers the very best experiences across the UAE and internationally through our services. We want to enhance the way people travel and help our valued customers stay connected when they travel by providing them with Data Roaming. Our goal is to continue adding life to life for our customers wherever they are, at home or abroad. We wanted to offer a solution that is innovative, flexible and great value, so our customers relax and enjoy effortlessly,” said Fahad Al Hassawi, Deputy CEO, Telco Solutions, EITC.
Postpaid customers can SMS “data” to 5102 to view the available roaming data bundles. Du recommends downloading the app to your mobile device, then choose your destination and the data bundle you desire will appear. The app conveniently allows you to monitor usage and plan ahead for that last YouTube video before boarding your return flight.
Prepaid customers have roaming already active on their lines by default and have a quick recharge feature via www.du.ae/QR , where they can recharge with their credit cards without logging into their accounts. Activating data roaming is simple, just dial *135*20# for free and follow the instructions on the menu. No need to wait in queues, purchase local SIM cards, or depending on Wi-Fi passwords to stay connected.
