Free high-speed WiFi at over 400 locations across the UAE

Apparently, today 20 June, is World WiFi day – who knew?

Not us, that’s for sure. But no matter, because in a move to help celebrate the international day of recognition for cable-free internet, WiFi UAE is giving users complimentary high-speed access to their services. Huzzah!

What is WiFi UAE? They’re a subsidiary of telecommunications company Du, that offer both free and paid WiFi options at places like Dubai Mall and metro stations. You probably recognise the name if you’ve ever tried to connect your phone to one of their 400 hotspots across the UAE.

From today, they will be offering users of their free tier 10 times faster connectivity all the way through Eid Al Fitr until 27 June.

Speaking about the initiative, Jihad Tayara, Vice President Business Development and Partnerships, du said: “In support of the Year of Giving and the Smart City initiative we are pleased to announce that we will be continuing to spread happiness to people across the UAE, as part of World WiFi Day and Eid celebrations. This initiative is another great stepping stone in our quest to support the UAE government in achieving country-wide WiFi access in line with the nation’s Vision 2021.”
