66 countries and counting … Welcome Bahrain and The UAE to Spearline fixed line testing!

At Spearline, we are always trying to replicate your customers’ call experience. Diversity of coverage is crucial – you need to know that your numbers are being tested against a wide range of global networks. We are therefore delighted to welcome The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain to Spearline fixed line testing.


The UAE fixed ISDN line with Etisalat is now fully operational and available to all Spearline customers. This now means that we are able to test your phone numbers with one of the largest telecoms providers in the UAE across fixed lines, in addition to the mobile coverage you have been enjoying.

Etisalat  was established over four decades ago in the UAE as the country’s first telecommunications service provider. An international blue-chip organisation, Etisalat provides innovative solutions and services to 143 million subscribers in 15 countries across the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
