Users to enjoy better Wi-Fi in every room, on every device
Abu Dhabi, 17 March 2018:
Etisalat today announced the launch of the UAE’s first home Wi-Fi designed to deliver super-fast, reliable, and non-stop connectivity when deployed in every room.
Etisalat’s new Wi-Fi service called ‘HomeZone’ creates a strong, reliable signal to help eliminate dead spots. For AED29 a month, users will receive new access points to boost their Wi-Fi coverage in up to 3 extra zones. Users can now seamlessly browse the internet, work remotely, shop online, stream videos in HD or 4K, or listen to music in more places than ever before.
Jonathan Haysom, VP of Home Services, Etisalat said:
“Today’s announcement demonstrates our push to break new ground with supreme user experiences. HomeZone will deliver even more blazing fast eLife Wi-Fi connectivity in the places that matter most to our customers. With the ever-increasing number of smart and connected devices in our customers’ homes, we want to ensure a hassle-free and professional connectivity experience is available to them. Every HomeZone is professionally installed and directly cabled to our eLife router by our installation team, ensuring connectivity without compromise.”
It is a complete package – high-end Wi-Fi hardware, Ethernet cabling to the access point as well as all labour are included in the monthly rental. The service is for a two-year period with no upfront payments. Customers have the flexibility of adding extra rooms, at any time, for a monthly charge of AED29 per room.
Etisalat’s field engineers will carry out a comprehensive Home Wi-Fi survey with the customer to ensure any extra Wi-Fi coverage can be delivered. The Wi-Fi survey is free during all new eLife installations and for those shifting their existing eLife connection to a new home. Survey visits typically cost AED150. However, this is waived if customers proceed with the HomeZone installation.
