UAE operator Etisalat has unveiled a new iPhone 5 package under which it will offer an LTE-enabled handset to provide customers with an enhanced mobile data experience on what it called the UAE's first and widest 4G LTE network. Etisalat said it has heavily invested in its 4G network, which offers speeds up to 150 Mbps. Running on iOS 6.1 connection to the LTE architecture now allows iPhone 5 to offer high-speed applications and processes, it stated.
Etisalat is offering the iPhone 5 for an upfront price of AED 2,749 for 16GB, AED 3,149 for 32GB and AED 3,549 for the 64GB device. Its pre-paid plans offer customers free 1GB data allowance every month for the first three months. From the fourth month, the 1GB of data will be available for AED 99. Etisalat's iPhone 5 bundled post-paid plan also provides three options including a contract-free 8GB data allowance, 800 local minutes or 200 international minutes of voice calls and 200 SMS for a monthly rental of AED 225. The package offers customers double the data for half the rental compared with post-paid packages on a 12-month contract basis.
Additional post-paid packages and data plans on a contract basis offer customers free or discounted iPhone 5 devices along with applicable data allowance, local or international talk-time and national SMS. Etisalat also offers flexible business plans on the iPhone 5, extending increased data allowance of up to 10GB, 400 local or 100 international minutes and 100 SMS per month.
