Du announces complimentary WiFi on the metro
Free service is available during Ramadan as part of #30DaysofSharing campaign
Dubai metro commuters will receive complimentary Wifi during Ramadan courtesy of du #30DaysofSharing.
The service will be available in all Dubai Metro carriages, on every train and on both the Green and Red Lines and passengers will be able to connect by selecting ‘du WiFi' from their device. Their browser will then direct them to the du WiFi landing page, from which they can start to surf the internet for free throughout their journey.
Fahad Al Hassawi, chief commercial officer, du, said: "Providing complimentary WiFi will allow Dubai's commuters to enjoy a higher level of seamless connectivity. The ability to connect anywhere, at any time, empowers people with the ability to be more productive, and to stay in touch with the things that matter most to them - something that we consider to be important at a time such as the Holy Month of Ramadan."
The initiative comes as a way to encourage social media users to share things that make Ramadan special to them using the hashtag #30DaysofSharing. For every post made with the #30DaysofSharing hashtag attached, du will donate AED 10 to its annual Mawaed Al Rahman Iftar tables initiative, from which Iftar meals are distributed to those less fortunate.
