Du has just launched new broadband speeds up to 24 Mbps for its home service customers, which it claims is the fastest in the UAE and highest in the Middle East.

“We pride ourselves in product and service innovation and our latest launch is a result of our continuous efforts to bring the very best available in broadband internet. In an increasingly digitally convergent world, availability of high internet bandwidth is a primary need and with our new broadband packages we are offering more choice, greater value and an unmatched user experience for our home services customers,” stated Farid Faraidooni, EVP Commercial, du.

The telco has also changed its pricing structure so customers now get double the speed for the same price - 4 Mbps subscribers will now get 8 Mbps speeds at the same earlier price of AED 449 per month, 8 Mbps subscribers will get 16 Mbps at a lower price of AED 549 per month, and 12 Mbps broadband customers will be upgraded to 24 Mbps at the same earlier price of AED 749 per month.

Additionally, each package comes with five email addresses with a 1 GB mailbox size, 20 MB web hosting space and protection against viruses and spyware. For more information and to subscribe to the 24 Mbps broadband home service package, visit the Du website.

See my first comment. It is now two weeks ago and they are still having technical problems with the upgrade.

Let's see if they can deliver. I asked for an upgrade from 1 to 8 MB and it is taking them more than a week to deliver. It is still not working

I remember I used to pay 40 dollars to Comcast when I was in Newyork, for a 30mBit broadband connection. There is nothing innovative about an overpriced, poor quality internet service. There is no competition at all, if you want internet you go with Du or Etisalat. So why bother improving service quality ? Hear us Du. We're not imbeciles
