Maroc Telecom 3G: From Bad To Worse!


Saidia – Maroc Telecom fancy itself as the leading communication company in Morocco and has been keen to sustain those claims with multi-million dollar advertising campaigns showcasing how family-friendly and affordable it is.

No one can deny that the ads are very impressing, especially the ones with A-list celebs dancing around and smiling with the company’s logo everywhere –> after all they’re paid to do so, but Moroccans with limited sources, unable to pay nearly 400 Dhs a month to acquire a faster internet connection, find themselves with the option of 100 Dh/month 3G connection and they would be lucky if the internet actually works let alone fast enough to watch videos.

The depressing reality is the fact that Maroc Telecom is yet to add a 4G connection while many Arab communication companies intiated it years ago! And the image gets even bleaker as the current 3G connection used to be faster just one year ago say Facebook-based young Moroccans who are outraged by what they called “lies and fabrications” made up by Maroc Telecom.

But to be honest enough, Maroc Telecom isn’t the only one with this problem as both Inwi and Meditel face the same problems along with the same absence of a near solution.

The Most Amazing City: DUBAI


Saidia – Dubai, stop and focus on this word. Dubai is an Arab city in the heartland of one of the world’s most positively driven people with great sense of hospitality.

Most of my fellow Arabs on the other hand, like to call people from the Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia (golf countries) all sorts of negative and envious words, I was surprised to meet a Dubai-native through Facebook whose niceness and open-mind made me go on a journey through the web to see what the Emirates is all about and for you guys, I think its wise to do the same before labeling anyone but reading this article won’t be for vain because during my “journey” I picked the most amazing photos on the web and you get to see them in one place…. only on “This Is Wafi Abdouss” (sounds like a TV ad I know).
