Eng Basem Rousan, Minister of Information and Communications Technology emphasized that today's event will go a long way in advancing competition in the fixed line sector in the Kingdom and achieving one of the main objectives of the national ICT strategy: Increasing Internet user penetration to 50% by 2012.

Mr. Alaeddin went on to say, “The telecommunications market in Jordan has become extremely competitive, so it is important for us to stand out, which we will achieve by offering our customers something different. To begin with, we have partnered with the pioneers in the industry, SK Telecom. Korea has the most advanced telecommunications sector in the world and serves as a shining example to us all of what is possible and what we should aspire to create. Using their expertise and vast experience in the field, we are able to provide our customers with the most advanced network in the region, if not the world."
Alaeddin concluded by saying, “Equally as important – Kulacom Jordan also strives to offer customers in Jordan with an exceptional and comprehensive customer service – we provide our customers with a focused approach to communications solutions rather than the race to contract approach—we truly listen to our customers, find out their requirements and design a solution that best meets those needs.”
