Free Wifi on all Dubai Metro trains and stations is now a reality.

1Access to the internet from Dubai Metro has long been on the wish list of many commuters.

A Wifi connection has been available, but against a charge so far.

During Ramadan and on other occasions commuters would be treated to free temporary Wifi connections, a service always received with much enthusiasm.

This year, however, internet on the Metro is here to stay.

The introduction of free Wifi on Dubai Metro is part of the Wifi UAE initiative, which was rolled out on several locations in order to contribute to ‘Smart’ UAE.

Dubai Tram, Dubai International Financial Centre, Knowledge Village, Dubai Media City, Emaar Boulevard, Global Village and Du shops are among the connected areas. More info
