Etihad Atheeb Telecom 'GO' has won the 'Best New Entrant' award at the Telecoms World Middle East Awards 2009, considered one of the most significant telecommunications awards in the region.
“Winning the award is an honour given its significance in the Telecoms sector and the strict evaluation criteria on which it relies,” stated Dr Ahmed bin Abbas Sindi, chief executive of Etihad Atheeb Telecom Company 'GO'.
“Etihad Atheeb Telecom 'GO' is the first 4G operator in Saudi Arabia, and holds a fixed line license from CITC, and we have taken upon ourselves the responsibility of bringing the latest telecommunications wire and wireless technologies to the Kingdom.”
“GO launched the Broadband Internet Service 'WiMAX' and gained the trust of more than 45,000 customers in a few months after the launch, followed by the launch of the 4G Voice service, which revolutionised the concept of fixed line services in the kingdom and allowed traditional fixed line users more choices.”
“We are determined to move forward with our plans to cover 4 areas in the Kingdom during the first year of operation and become the favoured Internet and Voice provider,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
