“We are breaking new frontiers in our level of service excellence and contributing to the enhanced competitiveness of our economy. Dubai Economy is committed to following the directives of our leadership in leveraging the latest technology tools innovatively and creatively to provide advanced services that add to the happiness of our customers. We are pleased to partner with du as the telecommunications sector is a fundamental fabric of modern society and, as businesses begin their journeys in Dubai, those involved can pursue their objectives with the infrastructure and solutions that du provides.”

With the infrastructure, services, and guidance that du provides, the business community can take great enthusiasm in knowing that telecom platforms are immediately available to help them drive growth and achieve their goals. This decision is expected to promote the Emirate’s economic development as well as its position as an investment hub.

Customers who have acquired company licenses from Dubai Economy will be presented with telecom services as well as a variety of non-telco digital enablers, such as domain registration and business enabling tools, through startup packs. Fast and reliable network speeds and national minutes are among the benefits of the mobile startup packs.
