Motorola To Deploy Mobilink WiMAX In Pakistan
As announced in various press releases, Motorola continues its bet on WiMAX. Part of the financing of this initiative is by Morotorla. See previous coverage of WiMAX in Pakistan and here. This is an interesting and expected development which puts pressure on Wateen to execute on the hype it created.
Motorola Inc. said Wednesday it has reached an agreement with telecommunications company Mobilink GSM to create a wireless network in Pakistan.
Motorola will design and set up the system using WiMax, a technology that allows transmission of wireless data over long distances.
The network will cover major metropolitan areas in Pakistan including Lahore and Islamabad and will allow Mobilink to extend its cellular service to include high-speed broadband.
This is the second such system Motorola will create in Pakistan and its fourth in the Middle East and Africa region.
