Can’t wait for fibre-to-the-home to go mainstream? Then get yourself down to Abu Dhabi. Etisalat has started routinely updating its lines with FTTH technology. That means blinding fast optical broadband speeds (up to 100Mbps), perfect for streaming HD content, internet TV and online gaming. Cool beans.
UPDATE: And Ajman, apparently. Apologies to Ahmad who sent us this photo. It was so well written we thought it was from an Etisalat corporate PR man of the same name.
