Etisalat has announced the launch of the first interactive touch screen ‘Smart Service’ machine to sell new activated prepaid SIM cards in UAE.
The automated machine will enable customers to buy SIM cards within minutes with an inbuilt ability to verify the Emirates ID, as the company states.
At the time of the launch, prepaid SIM cards will be available to customers. Etisalat plans to sell postpaid and introduce services such as SIM Swap (SIM replacement) and SIM re-registration via the machine in the near future.
Etisalat will be introducing the first machine at its office located at Al Kifaf in Dubai. Before the end of the year, there are plans to add 20 machines across UAE in Etisalat business centres, airports and malls.
