Stone Age communications.

I'm getting more and more irritated at the bloody stone age 'service' that we get from Etisalat. Over ten years ago my dial-up service in Australia was a hell of a lot faster than this so-called broadband.

When is the UAE going to drag itself into the 21st Century with communications?

It's a mindset that goes beyond just the out-of-touch and out-of-date Etisalat. We have the out-of-date and inefficient nonsense of total reliance on mobile phones. Web sites are out of date, anything up to literally years; no-one bothers to answer e-mails; no access to VOiP; the slowest downloads you can imagine.

We get deluged with publicity about state-of-the-art, cutting edge, Dubai a city for and of the 21st Century, a great place to relocate your business, a great place to do business blah blah blah.

It's all just so much garbage. We're twenty years behind.
