Wataniya Telecom Action subscribers reach new peaks
Kuwait’s Wataniya Telecom has reported that there has been a huge uptake of its 'Action' services over the last two months, with more than 15,000 subscribers actively using the operator's advanced GPRS and MMS Action branded services by mid December.
Action has gained wide popularity in the Kuwaiti market since its launch in July this year. With over 25,000 multimedia messages being exchanged on a daily basis, Wataniya Telecom is expanding its capacity to meet an accelerating adaptation of GPRS and MMS services. The company expects to have well over 25,000 active Action customers by January having recently averaged over 1,000 new MMS and GPRS activations per day.
Last month, Wataniya Telecom signed an MMS interconnectivity agreement with MTC-Vodafone that allows Kuwaiti customers for the first time to exchange multimedia messages with anyone in Kuwait. The agreement marked a significant event in terms of MMS developments both in Kuwait and the regional market.
Action subscribers can send and receive photo messages, access Qu'ranic verses, Blue Mountain Arts e-cards, wallpapers and movie previews as well as their email accounts.
Launched in December 1999, Wataniya Telecom is a GSM mobile operator in Kuwait. With a market capitalization exceeding $3.4 billion, the company has been a driving force in increasing the mobile communications market penetration in Kuwait to over 69 percent of the population. — (menareport.com)
