(MENAFN) Etisalat’s Executive Vice President for Carrier and Wholesale Services, Ali Amiri, said that since 2008, traffic from the company’s UAE operation increased 300 percent, surpassing the 100 Gigabit per second (Gbps) mark earlier this year, reported Emirates 24/7.

Amiri added that the increase in traffic showed the country’s growing Internet community who were continually connected via a group of devices that were available everywhere, in addition, the number showed the increasing usage amongst business customers who became more dependant on advanced technologies to operate regional offices from the UAE.
