Iraqtel, one of the recipients of the national wireless in the local loop (WiLL) licences awarded in September, has announced it will be deploying a WiMAX network in association with Canadian vendor, Redline Communications. Initially covering Basrah in the south, Iraqtel intends to expand the network across the country, providing a cost-effective alternative to VSAT for broadband connections.
