Adding further, Mr. Wetaid said, “We were the first to introduce a 42Mbps HSPA+ network making it the fastest mobile broadband for home, business and mobile users alike. We have taken our time to launch 4G LTE to ensure that the quality of our network, the offer and above all, the customer experience, exceeds the exemplary performance already offered by our 3G+ network. As we continue to expand and enhance our network offerings, we would like to thank various governmental organizations for helping us achieve this milestone.”
