Kuwaiti mobile operator, Wataniya Telecom, has extended its GPRS infrastructure to cover the whole country.

The operator has completed the second and final phase of its GPRS rollout, making the 'Action'-branded high-speed data and multimedia messaging services (MMS) it launched at the start of July available across Kuwait.

Previously, the operator's GPRS network covered areas from the sixth ring road to inside Kuwait City, including Kuwait's International Airport.

Action delivers a range of MMS and GRPS related services to mobile phone users in Kuwait.

The service, according to Fuad Al Ablani, Assistant GM, Wataniya Telecom, is receiving considerable interest and uptake from mobile phone users in the country.

"With full network coverage across the country, we expect the momentum of usage for Action services to increase dramatically as we continue rolling out at least one new service per week over the next two months," Al Ablani added.
