Bayanat Al Oula, a subsidiary of Saudi-based Mobily, has launched a new WiFi-enabled WiMAX router for its Broadband@Home service.

The new device can easily be installed and configured by anyone with basic technical ability, the company said in a statement.

As with other WiFi-enabled routers it can also be easily set-up when users move home, due to its plug-and-play feature, which does away with wiring and the need to install and run configuration software.

Groups of users can connect through the router at the same time using WiFi on their laptops and PCs – the router itself supporting speeds of up to two megabits per second (Mbps).

Broadband@Home is the first prepaid broadband service in Saudi Arabia and was initially launched by Mobily's Bayanat Al in four main cities: Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam and Khobar.

Coverage will soon be extended to other cities.

Mobily currently owns two thirds of the Kingdom's 12,000 kilometer fiberoptic network
