This is how you can get free WiFi in Dubai over Eid weekend



WiFi is brilliant, isn’t it? That moment when you connect to an open network and save your data bundle means that you can aimlessly scroll through videos of cats doing funny things, safe in the knowledge that it’s not costing you a penny.

If you’re on Etisalat, you’ve got the pleasure of free internet for the whole of Eid weekend. The telecommunications high-speed public WiFi (UAE WiFi by Etisalat) will be available across a load of malls, restaurants and cafes from August 30 to September 9.

Etisalat’s Chief Consumer Officer, Khaled ElKhouly said, “In the festive spirit of Eid Al Adha, we want to be part of our customers’ celebration, ensuring they stay fully connected to their families and friends. Customers will experience high speed and quality free across Etisalat’s public WiFi network to exchange greetings, share photos, access social networking websites and surf online.”

Connect to ‘UAE WiFi by Etisalat’ WiFi SSID signal in areas across the UAE including shopping malls, parks, beaches, entertainment and sports venues, airports and much more. You’ll need to complete a one-off registration, then Etisalat will send an SMS with a PIN number – you can then use your mobile number and PIN to login anytime.
