UAE residents can now make free Internet voice and video calls. The UAE's largest telecom operator Etisalat has made its monthly Internet calling plan free for two months, starting April.

"To stay in touch with your loved ones during these challenging times, subscribe to the monthly Internet calling plan service for free in April and May, and enjoy voice and video calls with the supported apps. To subscribe, SMS 'ICP' to 1012. Together at home matters," it said in a message sent to its subscribers.

This will come as a relief for residents as they #StayHome as a precautionary measure against the spread of Covid-19.

The telecom firm offers a number of packages including postpaid and prepaid mobile calling plans, daily plan for control line mobile and monthly plan for eLife home Wi-Fi subscribers.

With the subscription to any of the Etisalat Internet Calling Plan, subscribers can use VoIP apps such as BOTIM, HiU, Voico UAE and C'Me to make voice and video calls to their families.
