Are you traveling to the United Arab Emirates but wondering how the T-Mobile service is?
Most people traveling to UAE prefer their T-Mobile to the local SIM Cards. I have been to UAE a few times, and most of the time I used my T-Mobile.
This article will help answer this and the following questions:
- How is T-Mobile’s service in UAE?
- What speeds do you typically get when using T-Mobile in UAE?
- How much will it cost you to text and call with your T-Mobile in UAE?
How is T-Mobile’s service in UAE?
T-Mobile has great coverage everywhere in UAE. I use T-Mobile with either Etisalat or Du to roam.
What are T- Mobile UAE calling and texting rates?
If you are on T-Mobile Simple plan, you get $0.25/minutes calling rates, unlimited texting, and 2G free data.
If you are on other T-Mobile plans, you can check the rates on the T-Mobile Official Website.
What data speeds do you typically get when using T-Mobile in UAE?
T-Mobile offers free 2G speed on the Simple Global plans. However, it can also be very slow.
Therefore, if you are planning to use T-Mobile data in UAE I would recommend getting T-Mobile International Pass for faster speeds.
T-Mobile has three International Pass options that you can choose from:
|International Pass||Price||To Be Used In|
|1.||512MB high-speed International Pass with up to LTE speeds and unlimited calling.||$5/day||24 hours|
|2.||5GB high-speed International Pass with up to LTE speeds and unlimited calling.||$35||10 Days|
|3.||15GB high-speed International Pass with up to LTE speeds and unlimited calling.||$50||30 Days|
Lastly, T-Mobile is the best option for travelers who are going on short vacations/ stays.
So, if you are going for long stays like studying or permanent stays, there are other better options for that.
