If you do most of your online activity while out and about, then this week it’s going to get a lot more easy as WiFi speeds in Dubai are being turned up.
To celebrate World WiFi Day, WiFi UAE will be increasing the speed by up to 10 times, all the way through to Tuesday, 27th June.
WiFi UAE has 400 hotspots across the UAE with free and paid options and if you’ve ever connected to WiFi on the Metro or at a mall, it’s probably the network you’ve used.
The free service is running 10 times faster right now, all the way through to Eid Al Fitr.
Speaking about the initiative, Jihad Tayara, vice president of Business Development and Partnerships at du, said: “In support of the Year of Giving and the Smart City initiative we are pleased to announce that we will be continuing to spread happiness to people across the UAE, as part of World WiFi Day and Eid celebrations. This initiative is another great stepping stone in our quest to support the UAE government in achieving country-wide WiFi access in line with the nation’s Vision 2021.”
