In a move to boost uptake of multimedia services in Kuwait, the country's two mobile operators today signed an MMS interconnectivity agreement.
This new interconnection ability will enable Kuwaiti customers to exchange multimedia messages with anyone in Kuwait, regardless of which network they and their correspondent are using. The announcement marks the region's first national MMS interconnectivity agreement between two competing operators.
It is estimated that 2004 will be the year that MMS develops strong momentum and begins to see widespread use around the world with one in four handsets being MMS enabled. The success of MMS is largely dictated by the market's ability to quickly and easily send and receive multimedia messages between networks and devices. — (menareport.com)
