Synopsis

In 2017 the broadband market in the UAE is one of the most advanced both regionally and globally. Prior to the fixed network sharing agreement introduced in late 2015; both incumbent Etisalat and alternative provider du operated FttH networks in separate areas – du in the Dubai free trade zones and Etisalat in the rest of the country. Besides FttH/FttP, other internet technologies available in the UAE include ADSL, leased lines, Wi-Fi, and mobile networks.

The UAE government at both federal and emirate level has been proactive in the digital economy and digital media sectors, with programs to encourage computer and internet use. Like other countries in the Middle East, the UAE aims to transition into a ‘knowledge based and highly productive economy’ by 2021.
