Etisalat and du broadband choice in UAE expected ‘in a year’

Negotiations between the two major UAE internet providers to allow customers to choose which supplier they want to use are hoped to be concluded within the next 12 months.

The deal has been under discussion for more than three years but Etisalat and du have overcome technical issues and the talks are now purely commercial, said Abdulrahman Almulla, a senior vice president at Etisalat.

Most internet users have no choice of fixed broadband provider, with most homes supplied exclusively by either Etisalat or du, but not both. However, technology known as bitstreaming enables providers to share their networks by effectively renting them out to each other.
