The Integrated Telecom Company (ITC) has spent US$260million on its next generation network (NGN).

The Riyadh-based firm said it had deployed an optical fibre backbone network covering over 12,500 kilometres across the Kingdom, as well as installing wireless base stations, establishing high-capacity data centres and laying fibre rings in Riyadh, Jeddah, Khobar and Dammam.

Waleed Al-Abdulsalam, vice president of PR and communication at ITC, said the firm planned to launch its first set of core services this month.

"Building such a state-of-the-art network infrastructure will bring the Saudi telecom industry into a new era, enabling us to offer high speed and secure data communications to corporations, governmental agencies and individuals," he said.

These services will include internet bandwidth services to service providers and operators, and internet access and inter-branch connectivity services to private and public organisations.
