du hikes data allowances

Middle East carrier du is hiking its monthly data allowances for smartphone users by ten times over its standard package for the next 12 months.
The United Arab Emirates operator is offering new and existing users 10GB of data per month if they sign up to a tariff with a minimum spend of 250 dirhams ($68) per month in the next few weeks. The offer is one of several deals du is offering as part of a current smartphone promotion, with free and discounted devices also featuring heavily in the packages available.
Fahad Al Hassawi, chief commercial officer at du, says the data allowance hike is one of the firm’s most competitive offers this year, and meets consumers’ demand for “the best data packages” and “latest smartphone devices.”
du is also launching a rewards scheme for its business customers, offering points for up to 15% of their total monthly spend that can be redeemed for new smartphones and other devices.
