Zain considers 4G launch

5 Mar 2010

Zain Jordan is reportedly studying a number of offers by international equipment vendors for the introduction of Long Term Evolution (LTE), according to a statement issued by the company. Zain said it is considering offers to build the 4G infrastructure from companies including Motorola, Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia Siemens Networks. Zain CEO Abdel Malek Al Jaber said he is awaiting a decision by the telecoms watchdog, the TRC, on the award of the necessary licences which will hopefully lead to the launch of a trial network later this year, ahead of an official launch in early 2011.
