|Etisalat’s New Mobile Data USB Modem Redefines Wireless Internet Access|
Etisalat has launched today the latest mobile Data USB Modem, available for the first time in the country. Laptop users on the move now have the option of connecting to the Internet in 97% of the populated areas in the UAE. The new USB modem and the latest version of the PCMCIA data card both bring speeds of up to 7.2 megabits per second (Mbps) in the downstream and 1.9 mbps in the upstream. Smaller than a standard PC mouse, this USB modem can be used with both laptop and desktop computers with USB ports, enabling true connectivity for the user.
Compatible with all Etisalat SIM cards, this USB modem enables the user with Internet wireless access anytime, anywhere. Users can also use the SMS facility through this modem. Customers can purchase the Data USB modem priced at AED 780 from Etisalat Business Centres, or from authorized retailers across the country.
Etisalat currently has over 1.3 million customers using its 3.5G mobile data services, and this new modem will enable a large number of users to totally redefine how they access the Internet. Etisalat was the first operator in the region to offer 3G services to its customers in 2003, and the first to upgrade its mobile network to support 3.5G (HSPA) in 2005.
Etisalat has different data packages that are suitable for business and individual customers with different levels of data usage. These range from the high-usage package for users of near 1GB a month, to a pay-per-use facility for infrequent users.
