Etisalat is yet to officially confirm, but it is now widely reported that it has launched its own VOIP cards for cheap calls to Indian and other Asian countries. The cards named FIVE offer calls as cheap as 40 fils per minute.
The cards in denomination of 20, and 50 are being sold at Etisalat outlets in Dubai. This is in response to Du’s Hello, a VOIP card that has been in use without much publicity, for the last 2 years. We hope that we see a much further reduction in the cost per minute to make it truly affordable.
