AMMAN — Orange Jordan will complete the roll-out of Fourth Generation (4G) mobile service across the Kingdom by the end of November, the company’s CEO, Jerome Henique, said Wednesday.

“We will focus on increasing connectivity across Jordan as part of our Essentials 2020 strategy for the coming years,” Henique said at a press conference.

Stressing that there is a significant room for growth in the Jordanian market and that demand for telecom services is on the rise, he said Orange Jordan will focus on high-speed broadband amidst increased data usage in the Kingdom.

Henique added that Jordan is one of the most rapidly growing markets in this regard, noting that 4G technology will drive demand. 

Orange Jordan launched its 4G service in May after signing a deal with China’s Huawei in March to build its 4G network and upgrade its second and third generation networks.

Under its Essentials 2020 strategy, the telecom operator is allocating JD200 million for the enhancement of its network infrastructure.

 

In addition to Orange Jordan, telecom operators Zain Jordan and Umniah are also licensed to provide 4G services.
