Etisalat and Miral have entered into a partnership to develop and promote Yas Island with public WiFi.

The service will be available to both UAE residents and tourists with international mobile numbers, and accessed through the ‘UAE WiFi by Etisalat' network.

Visitors to Yas Island will enjoy access to high-speed internet connection, enabling them to text, browse, chat and stream videos easily without any advertisements or pop-ups. 

"This strategic partnership with Etisalat comes in line with our continuous efforts to develop the infrastructure of Yas Island to make it a world-class travel and tourism destination," said Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral. "We continually look at enhancing our visitors experience through providing an inclusive infrastructure of services, and adding a public WiFi across Yas Island is another remarkable milestone in that journey".

Jamal Alnuaimi, general manager, Etisalat Abu Dhabi said: "Today the country has the most connected networks in the region due to the long term vision of our leadership. Etisalat has continuously invested in building a superior telecom network to enable connectivity for all residents. We are proud to be associated with this prestigious project that will set a path to enable our network on the entire Yas Island which is one of the best world class destinations today."

The partnership aligns with the country's ‘smart' vision which focuses on delivering WiFi coverage across all UAE regions, including Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Northern Emirates.
