Etisalat announced today the launch of daily local calling bundles, offering Wasel prepaid customers the opportunity to make local calls at heavily discounted rates.
The daily bundles come in three flavours to address the needs of both low and high usage customers: AED 1 for 5 minutes; AED 2 for 10 minutes, and AED 4 for 30 minutes. The minutes can be used to call any mobile or landline number in the U.A.E.
Wasel prepaid line users can choose and subscribe to their preferred bundle for free by dialling *111#. Customers need to subscribe only once, and their preferred bundles will be renewed daily upon making the first local call of the day. There will be no charges on days subscribers do not make local calls, which is convenient for customers especially while travelling abroad on business or vacation.
Local calls made on Wasel prepaid lines beyond the bundled talk time will be charged at 0.6 fils per second starting 1 July 2014. The rate for customers on old tariffs will be 36 fils per minute starting from July first 2014.
Customers on old tariffs can migrate to New Wasel and enjoy per second billing by dialling *140# for free.
The new Wasel local calling bundles give customers the opportunity to make the most of UAE s leading mobile network for their everyday calling needs at prices as low as 20 fils for the AED 1 and AED 2 bundles, and less than 13.3fils per minute for the AED 4 bundle.
