Mobily completes WiMAX coverage of Riyadh

22 Mar 2010

Etihad Etisalat (Mobily) has announced that it has completed WiMAX coverage of the Saudi capital. Mobily first introduced WiMAX in September 2008 a few months after completing its acquisition of WiMAX licensee Bayanat Al-Oula in a deal that was reportedly worth SAR1.5 billion (USD399 million). The announcement means that Mobily’s broadband @subscribers can now use their WiMAX modems anywhere in Riyadh at speeds of up 2Mbps. ‘Mobily is working on covering most of the kingdom’s cities and regions with WiMAX as per its technical plan,’ said Abdulaziz Altamami, Mobily’s chief operating officer.
