AMMAN — The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) recently decided to renew the Jordan Telecom Group’s (JTG) Second Generation (2G) licence for 15 years, according to a statement on the TRC website.

JTG recently said that it may need 2G services for the next seven years, since usage of third generation services is on the rise in the Kingdom.

According to JTG figures, around 68 per cent of the handsets on the telecom’s network are 2G devices.

In terms of operating systems, some 58 per cent of smartphones on the telecom’s network use Android, followed by Symbian (28 per cent), iOS (8 per cent), Windows (2 per cent) and BlackBerry (2 per cent).
