Another Wimax Operator Launching Soon – Augere

augereAugere, a Netherland firm whose focus is on broadband delivery in emerging markets, has been selected by TeleCard for its Wimax operations. This was in the news sometimes ago but this is now confirmed that they are going ahead with their deployment.

Huawei equipment has been chosen for this purpose and NETKOM is deploying the network these days. About 100 sites are selected for installation in Karachi (that I came to know about).

Led by a highly experienced team of international telecommunication executives, Ex-chairman Orange Telecom, Augere has an access to significant financial and technical expertise that will support its business in Pakistan.  TeleCard hopes that the launch of a Wimax Network will enable TeleCard to further its penetration in the telecom sector and to optimize use of TeleCard resources not only in the form of spectrum utilization but also leveraging the overall field network and infrastructure which the Company has deployed throughout the country.

They have this court matter with Qatar Telecom these days about some licensing issues. Reportedly, QTel is saying that they were first to finalize the deal with Telecard and not Augere. Once this court matter is sorted out, the new Wimax Opeator will be in market.

So, Wateen and Infinity, get ready for more competition after Wi-Tribe – by the way Wi-Tribe is launching their network in few weeks; stay tuned to remain updated : – )

  • good for the industry that it will have more options for the customers but I personally dont like Wi-Max!

  • I can confirm the spat with Qtel that Telecard has/had…through sources of course.

    Telecard kinda played dirty here and are now under court orders according to a source but if they are going ahead with Augere then they are not really complying with court orders.

    Lets see what Qtel has to say.

  • Well, its good to have more WiMax competitors in market.

    Personally i don’t like it too but its compulsion to use it as backup of Wired DSL.

  • wateen has stabled its network in three years, mostly people prefer wateen due to fine service……..

  • huh,… wimax… is a new world for south asia… nobody has been able to develop a good service channel as yet…

  • Wmiax is the best technology when it cames to wireless connectivity. this for sure the growing industry in pakistam. I am hopefull they will offer chaep rates for students.

  • Wateen imporved its services after november 2008 because it increased its Access Points. If your DAP camps with good signal you can get 25kb/sec as constant speed on 512k link. The fact is that Mr Umer Shah Took the charge of Wateen Contact Centre as GM and he is the only man who is behind the better image of Wteen Telecom. I am saying this because fortunatley I worked in wateen contact centre more that a year as team Leader. No doubt its services were pathetic at the start of wimax but now in broadband industry, wateen wimax is incompareable.

  • WiMax or LTE, you guys can fight which one is better or which one will win, but guess what, you lose whichever wins. One is backed by Europe and one is backed by US, so whoever will win, ultimatley they get rich while you losers will be eating peanuts

  • Augere,its good for all wateen users.Wateen v.v Bad service provider.we are not satisfied

  • WiMax technology is the fastest technology for internet. More Wimax more competetion!!

  • Wateen improved its services after November 2008 because it increased its Access Points. If your DAP camped with good signal strength, you can get 25kb/sec as constant speed on 512k link and now Mb bandwidth is also available. Cheapest rates for unlimited package. Student package for Sargodha City. Up 4 Mb speed for HFC customers and so more… This the fact that after taking charge as GM of Wateen Contact Center Mr Omer Shah really work hard and he is the only Man who is behind the better image of Wateen Telecom. I am saying this because luckily I am working in Wateen Telecom. Every company takes time to grow and same is the case with Wateen. Before three years it was a small plant and now it is growing day by day with the day and night effort of Mr. Omer Shah. WiMax is incomparable in broadband industry. Let’s buy the connection and fell the difference………
