New Wi-Tribe CPE Device to be Launched

Wi-tribe, a Qtel Group Company, has today announced its alliance with a top WiMAX customer premises equipment (CPE) manufacturer to give its customers a top of the line branded device.

Initially, customers in Pakistan will be able to use the customized CPE to access the Wi-tribe network in areas of coverage and plans to launch customized products onto other markets.

This step is in line with Wi-tribe’s commitment to provide the most convenient and simple internet access to emerging markets.

“We promise our customers innovation and fun, and taking this step to design our own CPE to match the standards that they expect, and at a rate which is affordable to everyone, is clear proof of our commitment,”

stated Wi-tribe Group CEO, Sami Hinedi.

The CPE is the device that connects the customer to Wi-tribe’s internet service. The fully branded CPE, developed under the Wi-tribe’s brand, will use the latest WiMAX technologies and would allow Wi-tribe to produce personalized CPEs at a lower cost which means addressing a wider segment of the market in the communities they serve.

“Although standards are still not finalized, WiMAX is emerging as a competitive option to alternatives such as cable or DSL for delivery of broadband services. To be competitive, the total cost per customer must be comparable to these alternatives. That is why wi-tribe has come together to examine all aspects of the technology for these CPEs and the role of all players in the supply chain for their production,” explained Hinedi.

“The Wi-tribe CPE will deploy the latest WiMAX technology chipsets and will use an optimized antenna design to provide better service for our customers,” continued Hinedi.

    when you say tribe it mean you are distributing Pakistanis into Tribes.
    a thought of division of Nation is being establish in our society.
    it should be Wi-Nation or Wi-Pakistanis.

    Stay away from Witribe!

    I tried their broadband service in Pindi and it is so pathetic. Many times, the CPE doesnt connect to the tower and even if it does, the speed is so slow that it feels like a dialup connection. The reality is that Witribe has laid a small network with reduced bandwidth to cut network costs. Hence, the quality of their broadband service is really bad in most areas.
