Zain Bahrain upgrades wireless broadband
Manama, April 11, 2011
Zain Bahrain, a leading telecom service provider, has migrated to the latest version of WiMAX network that offers higher speeds and threshold, more cost-effective and future-sensitive broadband service.
“Zain Bahrain introduced the first nation-wide WiMAX (worldwide interoperability for microwave access) in the world to Bahrain in 2007, thus putting the Kingdom on the global telecoms map,” said general manager Mohammed Zainalabedin.
“Today, we are preparing for the future by upgrading to the latest version of WiMAX which will enable us to ramp up our broadband speed and offer a much wider range of broadband offerings.”
The upgraded version of WiMAX offers Zain customers increased reliability and higher speeds and enables Zain Bahrain to restructure its broadband and fixed WiMAX services to offer more innovative voice and data solutions at extremely attractive prices, a statement said.
“At Zain Bahrain, we will use the superior speed and reliability of the upgraded version of WiMAX to maximize our broadband bouquet,” said Mohammed Al Alawi, Zain Bahrain’s business solutions expert.
“Customers can look forward to exciting new offers that will be assigned to meet their new lifestyle requirements and deliver a better overall end-to-end experience.”
“You can watch streaming video from YouTube, you can download enormous files, pictures and video in just seconds, or wirelessly share a live event via video as it happens. These and other vastly improved services will be available to Zainers, thanks to our upgrade,” Al Alawi added.
Zain Bahrain will also be replacing old WIMAX routers with new routers that will enable access to upgraded WiMAX services, the statement said.
One of the big benefits of the upgrade is that it will put Zain customers in sync with Bahrain’s ambitious e-government plans that will see more and more facilities such as healthcare, utilities and government services transactions go online in the months ahead, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
