The Yemeni government has begun installing a national WiMAX network to improve the availability of internet access, reports National Yemen. The project is to be completed in two phases and will see the deployment of 28 stations covering Sanaa and Aden. The rollout is expected to cost YER591 million (USD2.736 million). Commenting at a ceremony marking the launch of the project, Minister of Telecommunications Dr. Ahmed Obaid Bin Daghar said: ‘We are looking for all the people to benefit from this technology and it will be available to all kinds of people, and not just a specific group. It will be helpful in many fields – in education, health, communication.’
