Cheap iPhones?

Etisalat could lower iPhone prices in line with rest of the region

Etisalat will lower the prices of its Apple iPhone packages if given approval by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), according to a story in Al Khaleej Times.

The Arabic daily quoted Etisalat's chief executive, Mohammed al Qamzi, as saying the company had submitted a request to the TRA for a price reduction, but had yet to hear back from the regulator.

Etisalat's pricing plans for the iPhone put the company at the top end of all international operators offering the device.

Its plans are up to 50 per cent more expensive than similar deals in Jordan and Egypt, and more than double the price of comparable iPhone packages in the UK or Australia.
