^ I have a 128K DSL connection at home in Riyadh and the monthly bill that we get is SR. 180 + 120 = 300 --- that's SR. 180 for the ISP and SR. 120 for the link (comes as part of the telephone bill).

GSM:
There are two options for prepaid connections
(1) Line Rent = SR 45, Per Minute Charges = SR 0.35
(2) Line Rent = SR 35, Per Minute Charges = SR 0.45
(Users can switch between the two options with just a single SMS)
SMS: SR 0.25 is for local messages.

smussuw, please post the info for UAE.

Hey smussuw, well here is the link to all the prices (note that there are 1000 fils in a dinar if you don't know that already;)), which can be found under Internet Services:

Also, note that a new company has been launched which will provide landlines (first company in the mideast to break a monopoly), internet and other first of a kind features. I'll post a thread about it in the Bahrain section to look out for it.
