EMIX does not sell INTO the UAE. It sells to ISPs in the region.

a number of years ago i tried to get similar answers, while actually living in
Dubai, and never got anywhere.

i think bill is correct, although, i was never able to find a sales person
willing to sell me an EMIX connection.

it is sad really, because the UAE is well positioned to run a good sized
and well connected exchange.
