Etisalat has entered into a strategic agreement with Miral, the company responsible for the development of Yas Island in Abu Dhabi as a destination for leisure, business and entertainment, to provide visitors with public WiFi on the island.

The WiFi service will be available to UAE residents and tourists with international mobile numbers.  Users will be able to access the service through the ‘UAE WiFi by Etisalat’ network.

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.

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.

Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral, added: “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.”
