Dubai-based telecoms operator du has launched the follow-up to its "Easy Social" plan, offering four monthly bundles for social-media-hungry subscribers.

"Extra Social" comes in Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large, beginning at AED40 and each bundle includes social data, flexible minutes, and data according to subscriber preferences. Du also said any credit added would not expire.

"We constantly strive to understand the evolving needs of our customers and create differentiated product offerings that cater to each and every segment in the market," said Fahad AlHassawi, chief commercial officer, du.

"In the complex world we live in today, a simple plan that covers all needs in one bundle is our way to simplify our customers' lives. It's a plan unlike any other, especially for prepaid customers!"

"Extra Social" allows access to Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, LinkedIn, BBM, Instagram and Snapchat. The bundle's data allowances include browsing, streaming and uploading and flexible minutes can be used for national or international calls.

The AED40-per-month Small bundle gives 60 flexible minutes, 100MB data and 1GB social data; the AED85-per-month Medium bundle gives 150 flexible minutes, 400MB data and 1GB social data; the AED150-per-month Large bundle gives 270 flexible minutes, 1GB data and 1GB social data; and the AED300-per-month Extra Large bundle gives 600 flexible minutes, 2GB data and 1GB social data.

Current du prepaid subscribers can sign up by dialling *135*444#, then *135#, and choosing 2, to select a bundle. Du said credit balances are transferable. New subscribers need to buy a prepaid SIM online or from a du shop.
