Wi-Fi is now available on all Careem cars in Dubai for free.
Careem has just announced a new partnership with local telecoms provider Etisalat to provide free Wi-Fi access to all Careem cars operating in Dubai.
This means that on every Careem ride, you don’t have to use your own personal data allocation and just use the free Wi-Fi on board the taxi. The connection comes from the new Wi-F10X service powered by Etisalat’s mobile network. It asks users to log in using a customer’s mobile phone number to ensure privacy and security.
“This agreement as it reflects our commitment to provide secure, high-speed communication to all Careem patrons on their journey. This agreement is another vital step forward in making Careem one of the safest and trusted online platforms in the region,” Careem said in a blog post.
This comes after Careem was recently acquired by competitor Uber a few months ago for $3.1 billion.
