DubaiDave, in a way Etisalat has partially lost its monopoly! A new company, called SAHM provides telephone, internet, and television entertainment services to Dubai Marina, Emirates Hills and other residents. We use them, and they are much cheaper and much more efficient that Etisalat, especially when it comes to internet connection speeds. I would rather die than go back to Etisalat now
Their site is www.sahm.ae

sahm is not new and provide services only to Emaar "for Emaar projects" and I think they don't block sites since it made for expatriates...

You will see 1 or 2 companies by next year and I think they will only provide mobile services…
