Orange Jordan bags second 4G licence

26 Jan 2015

Orange Jordan expects investment in 4G technology to reach USD250 million in 2014 and 2015, The Jordan Times cites senior officials as saying at a press conference yesterday. The cellco last week secured the nation’s second 4G licence, paying JOD71 million (USD99.93 million) for 2×10MHz in the 1800MHz range. Orange plans to launch Long Term Evolution (LTE) services in the capital in the first half of the year, before gradually extending coverage to the rest of the Kingdom by the end of 2015. To that end, the cellco is close to finalising a supplier for its 4G network and expects to announce the winning vendor soon.
