menatelecom is also playing an active role in catering to the insatiable demand for high-speed broadband in Bahrain. Elaborating, Mr. Jawahery says, “We are one year into our mission to provide broadband technology that reaches out to everyone in Bahrain. As one of the forerunners in the world for WiMAX commercial deployment, we’re very proud of what we’ve achieved today from ground zero. Furthermore, we have witnessed the price of internet in Bahrain fall dramatically since menatelecom has entered the market".
menatelecom has changed the way people in Bahrain communicate by introducing new convenient services that were never available before, while retaining the freedom to stay connected anywhere, at anytime.
menatelecom has introduced packages for both home and business users with speeds of up to 15 Mb combined with benefits that surpass all other existing internet & telephony providers. menatelecom's packages offer customers the opportunity to choose monthly plans tailored to suit every need, with the freedom to switch plans at anytime while enjoying continuous high-speed wireless access that follows you anywhere.
Mr. Jawahery attributes menatelecom's progress to a few key success ingredients. He says, “We have a very strong workforce that believes in our WiMAX vision, and everyone from our engineers, marketers, and finance personnel to our help desks staff tackled the knowledge gap in relation to the new WiMAX technology. Now we’re probably one of the most skilled workforces the world has to offer for the deployment and service provision of WiMAX.”
Mr. Jawahery continues, “menatelecom’s WiMAX service has broken boundaries by offering the highest internet speeds available in the Kingdom of Bahrain, coupled with a high-grade telephony service that utilizes the new 77xxxxxx number range. All this while offering the full freedom and mobility that WiMAX 802.16e has been designed for.”
