A new pay as you use option introduced for prepaid subscribers.

Starting today, prepaid users on Etisalat has an option to access mobile data using a new ‘Start/ Stop’ process that will be charged only 2 fil per minute of use. Its purpose is to offer users a new ‘short-period, on-demand, mobile internet access.’

To do this, users must need to dial *777# to start and stop a data session. Charging will happen within the minutes used between the start and stop time. There is no limit to data used within this given period.

Data speed will be capped at 1 Mpbs for this particular service, but it should be enough to browse mobile sites, send messages and share and upload images to a social media network.

Khaled ElKhouly, Chief Consumer Officer, Etisalat said: “Etisalat’s launch of the ‘Start/Stop’ data service will be a game changer for the industry making data usage accessible to all prepaid subscribers and most of all affordable. Time based data access with pay per minute charging has not been launched on a commercial scale as we have done here. We are confident customers will enjoy this innovative new data service that gives them the agility to use and pay as per their usage.”
