STILL ABSURD !
What does that mean to us.
It means now that all those corporate companies that have ISDN LAN connections should be breathing down Etisalat's back for fairer Unlimited Rates (if they have the guts).
Having this plan will alleviate the major gripe of many of the over 100,000 customers of Emirates Internet that use the the service more than a few hours a day.
The solution is without a doubt the speedy implementation of an Unlimited Rate Plan while keeping the toll free access number intact.
What can YOU do about it ?
One way would be for you to Email

of their customers ask for a service they can provide but are not, perhaps they will
realise that it is a Plan worth implementing.
