“Today the country has the most connected networks in the region due to the long term vision of our leadership,” said Jamal Saeed Al Nuaimi, General Manager of Etisalat Abu Dhabi. “Etisalat has continuously invested in building a superior telecom network to enable connectivity for all residents. We are proud to be associated with this prestigious project that will set a path to enable our network on the entire Yas Island which is one of the best world class destinations today.”
