eCompany, Etisalat’s internet arm, has announced a promotion for its BusinessOne broadband service, aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the region. The promotion will run until July 28, and will give businesses an opportunity to experience better broadband service, backed by a range of savings including free monthly rentals on all packages, free installation and router discounts. Users who sign up for the promotion will get two months’ free rental on all packages. While BusinessOne’s usual AED 200 installation fee will be waived during the promotion period, users will also get a 50% discount on the router, which usually costs AED 600. “With the help of this innovative offer, SMEs in the UAE can now truly benefit from the same high-speed access to the internet previously available only to large companies,” said Abdulla Hashim, senior manager at eCompany. “They will be able to do more in less time by engaging in a wide range of online activities and make better use of the opportunities provided by the internet,” he added. eCompany’s BusinessOne packages bundle services such as broadband internet access, multiple personalised e-mail accounts, and web hosting. Different packages are available for single-and multiple-user businesses, with packages starting at AED 350 for a single user account. Though eCompany continues to try and woo more broadband customers, those subscribers already signed up to its Al Shamil service have been experiencing poor online performance of late. Last month eCompany had cited the breakdown of its international cables as a reason for poor broadband speeds. The company also claimed that it was now the responsibility of an as-yet-unnamed third-party service provider to get things back up to speed. As yet, there has been no noticeable performance improvement. Users wanting to subscribe to eCompany’s promotional offer can call Etisalat’s toll free number 800 6 100 for further information.
