UAE telecoms operator Etisalat has rolled out a new international roaming package for business customers, starting from Dh35.

The deal covers incoming voice and data across 90 countries and 180 operators. The company describes the Global packages as the first of their kind, offering unlimited roaming add-ons for business travellers and the flexibility to choose from daily or monthly options with their existing Etisalat business mobile plans.

The new launch includes Etisalat’s Global business roaming packages, especially the unlimited global data roaming package, which starts from as low as Dh35 and unlimited voice roaming packages for as low as Dh95. These packages are an extension of Etisalat’s existing roaming offers such as GCC unlimited Data roaming package.
