Wataniya Telecom invests $350 million to roll out LTE / 4G

Wataniya Telecom has invested more than $350 million to modernize its network and provide LTE / 4G services.

By the end of the year, the 4G service will be covering most of Kuwait.

To provide better customer experience, Wataniya has upgraded its towers and built new ones.

Customers can enjoy 4G internet on fixed and pocket routers for a monthly subscription of KD 17 with a usage of 60 GB per month for 12 months (30 GB as the main pack plus customers get 30 GB Night Pack for free every month).

Wataniya Telecom is also offering free trial for 7 days prior to subscription without any commitments. If customers’ expectations were not met, the telecom operator will collect the router and refund their down payment in full.

Wataniya Telecom CEO Engineer Abdulaziz Fakhroo said the company will continue to invest in new technologies and services as it seeks to satisfy the needs of its customers.

Wataniya Telecom posted KD 75.5 million ($268.5 million) in net profits for 2012, compared with $362.1 million a year earlier. The company’s overall revenues in 2012 have amounted to KD 742.5 million ($2.64 billion), up 2.2 percent over KD 726.6 million ($2.58 billion) in 2011.
