UAE telecom providers Etisalat and du are criticized by the members of the Federal National Council for their costly services and poor services at the same time.
The House members were particularly angry on both telecom providers for not showing up in the meeting.
No representatives from both companies have shown up and have given no reason for their absence.
The meeting will tackle about their services they are providing in the country.
Mohammad Al Kashf, member of the FNC, told Gulf News that telecom services in the country are expensive and most of their profits are from UAE market, not from their operation abroad.
He added that residents who haven’t paid their internet bill had their internet services cut off amid the Covid-19 crisis which greatly affected the e-learning system.
In a survey conducted by an ad hoc in the country, it found out that 75 percent of the respondents believe that the prices of services provided by both companies are high; 44 percent of them believe that these companies do not provide sufficient offers for people of determination and senior citizens in the country.
