The deal will see the vendor extending the coverage and increasing the capacity of Wataniya’s high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) system. Harri Koponen, Wataniya Telecom’s general manager and CEO, said: ‘There is growing demand for mobile data services among our customers in Kuwait, so in order to serve our customers better we decided to expand our existing HSDPA network and extend the service to new areas’.
