United Arab Emirates is centrally located in the middle eastern region in terms of its location compared to the location of the submarine cables connecting the region to the rest of the world. The largest city, Dubai, is a very attractive co-location spot in the region, and is home to a lot of western businesses as well. Dubai is connected via the FOG submarine cable to Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and furthermore the city of Al Fujairah is connected to a lot of the primary cables in the region - including Indo-UAE, IMEWE, SEA-ME-WE-4, SEA-ME-WE-3 and Flag Telecom's FEA 4.
Dubai is not the capital of UAE, Abu Dhabi is, but it has grown to be the largest due to a lot of western businesses and people settling there. The 83.000 square kilometers large country borders Saudi Arabia, Oman and the persian gulf. The population is less than 5 million people and the primary language is Arabic, but there is a lot of English speaking people in UAE as well.
