Students can choose from connection speeds of up to 4Mbits, with BD 19 being the lowest monthly rate available for the broadband and laptop offer.

This is very interesting news and i am glad that mena telecom is moving in the right directions. I wonder how Zain bahrain is acting now after realizing they have chosen the wrong wimax technology (no laptops or even indoor) and their WiMAX vendor Redline is collapsing and going out of business.
