Addicted to your mobile? Well, here’s some good news – phone calls in the UAE are going to get a whole lot cheaper!
A GCC-wide committee covering post, IT and communications has reached an deal to gradually reduce rates for roaming, telephone calls, text messaging and data services throughout the six member countries.
Roaming rates within the region are slightly higher than elsewhere, while data usage can cost a fair chunk more than expats may be used to paying at home.
Prices for phone calls, texting, roaming and data usage are all expected to fall when measures agreed by the GCC Ministerial Committee for Post, Communications and Information Technology come into place on 1 April 2016.
We just hope it’s not an elaborate April Fools’ joke!
