Wataniya Telecom has launched the Middle East’s first advanced 3G mobile network employing high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) technology. The move to HSDPA was carried out by way of a software upgrade on Wataniya’s existing WCDMA 3G networks. All of the telco’s 3G systems have been supplied by Nokia. Wataniya claims around 40% of the Kuwaiti mobile market, where it competes with MTC-Vodafone.
