MTC-Kuwait has deployed a nationwide 3G mobile broadband network from Motorola across Kuwait as part of a multi-million dollar agreement.

The operator, a subsidiary of MTC Group, said that using the network, which is HSDPA enabled, will enable it to address new opportunities for multi-media services, expanding capacity, availability and broadband capabilities to support more voice and data transmission in Kuwait.

"Enhanced speed, quality and variety are what our mobile-centric subscriber base is looking for in Kuwait when it comes to broadband services. Motorola's high performance network solution will enable MTC to provide customers with a compelling portfolio of services such as video conferencing, which is steadily gaining popularity here in the Middle East," said Barrak Al Sabeeh, general manager of MTC-Kuwait.

In addition to Kuwait, Motorola's GPRS core network technology is also used to service MTC customers in Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq.

"This is a significant deployment for us in the region and clearly reflects Motorola's growing success in the Middle East and the technical strength of our UMTS and HSDPA solutions," commented Ali Amer, vice president, Middle East, Africa and Pakistan for Motorola.
