In a bid to get the home users in the UAE online, EIM has cut the price of the Windows XP and Windows 2000 compatible Al Shamil modem by almost 50%. The cost of the external USB 4060 modem has fallen from 660 Dhs to 375 Dhs.

Users of the modem will be able to benefit from the high bandwidth Internet applications that are expected to become available in the future. The faster downstream speed of 384 k/bytes per second will make possible downloading movies, for instance, which current ‘dial-up’ access is to slow for.

"All Al Shamil customers now have the option to either upgrade their existing modem for Windows XP and 2000 compatibility or purchase a new one at a reduced cost," says Maan Al-Sabi, development manager, Emerging Technologies & Services, EIM.

"The Windows operating system is used on a global scale and we must ensure that all users in the UAE are able to keep pace with the latest developments. By reducing the costs of the USB 4060 modems, EIM is helping the country to stay at the forefront of technology change," he adds.

To tie in with the promotion, EIM is offering fixed price Internet access at 250 Dhs per month.
