Wateen to face WiMAX Competition in Pakistan, Soon

One of our fellows, M. Junaid Khan, recently discovered a job’s ad from Wi-Tribe in some newspaper.Wi-Tribe Obviously, there is nothing exciting in that, however, the clue he got was of some importance for internet users in Pakistan.

Junaid Khan, predicts that Wi-Tribe is going to launch their WiMAX services very soon in Pakistan. It merits mentioning here that Wi-Tribe is jointly owned by Qatar Telecom, ATTCO group and Clearwire, and they are already operating WiMAX in Jordan. Wateen Telecom

Wi-Tribe is one of fourteen LDI license holders in Pakistan, and they had been in a dispute with Telecard, reported here.

LinkDotNet is also intending to launch its WiMAX services in Pakistan, while they are in an agreement with Alcatel-Lucent for WiMAX deployment.

So there are some sign of competition for Wateen Telecom in coming days. Wateen say they have managed to grab 15,000 customers till now, and they hold 9 percent share in broadband market. Un-confirmed sources have reported that Wateen may start its DSL operations as well, to compete and survive in the tightening low priced market.

  • Wateen record hit broadband market causing Etisalat(PTCL) to rollback its broadband infrastructure from pakistan.

  • Mobilink already launched WiMAX….INFINITI in Karachi and soon it will be launched all over Pakistan. Telecom companies can only spread WiMAX services with full pace because they already have infrastructure and cell site towers. Only need to fix equipment for WiMAX.

  • well weteen's Wimax is not good infront of PTCL broadband. Wateen suck. my friend is crying. he paid about 80000 to wateen but the service is so sick. even a file of 10mb take 15min sometimes to get download. and wateen is giving limited broadband or what can i say like you can download just 1 gb ina month. and with a help of ptcl broadband i download 1 gb every day in just 2 or 3 hours.
