Ismail Akil Abbasi, Chief Executive Officer DUBTRADE LLC, the licensed franchisee of CBTL in the UAE, said: "Internet usage in the UAE has been projected to be the highest in the region by 2005. Offering wireless-enabled networks to our patrons is in line with the growing interest in hotspots that allows cable-free access to Internet through Wi-Fi devices. Enabling the CBTL outlets with wireless communication devices is also testimony to our commitment to provide value-added services to our patrons." "Our patrons range from students to professionals and even businessmen. The Jumeirah Centre outlet is quite popular for business meetings and providing them the facility to access the internet through wireless was a logical step that we decided to take. The UAE has an increasing number of people who are spending time away from their desks and wish to have access to their email account or their corporate network."

Without any extra charge, patrons can avail half an hour of the WLAN service, simply by ordering any beverage at the outlet. The new wireless hotspots solution enables patrons at the CBTL outlets to hook up to the Internet without the use of cables making it hassle-free and comfortable to use laptops or other mobile communication devices.
