Mobily, regularly ranked among the leading operators in the region, is currently deploying HSPA+. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Mobily’s share of the country’s wireless market stood at just over 40% at the end of 2009; the company is gradually narrowing the gap on Saudi Telecom Company, which finished the year with a 48% share.
