Mena Telecom has launched a new USB WiMAX device that allows for reliable and high-speed wireless broadband internet access for its customers in Bahrain.

The thumb-drive-sized device is preconfigured to connect to Mena Telecom's WiMAX network as soon as it’s plugged directly into laptop computers and other USB-enabled devices. Home and business customers can enjoy speeds of up to 8 Mbps using mykey packages, which are currently only offered with data services.

Mena claims the device has been designed with ‘multiple antennae technology’ to ensure reliable connectivity. Details on pricing and application procedure can be found on the company’s website.

"Our new mykey device will let people enjoy desktop-like performance while on the go with their laptop computers by giving them wireless connectivity to menatelecom's broadband wireless network," commented Abdul Razak Jawahery, executive manager Kuwait Finance House - Bahrain (KFH), representing KFH as vice chairman and managing director of Mena Telecom.

Why dont these idiot operators get it!? wireless can't be the answer for broadband any more, just like every average broadband user realizes that wireless connections (i.e. EDGE, WiMax, HSDPA, 3G etc..) will never push you true and stable broadband connections.. Anyway, LLU is around the corner, we expect fiber-to-the-exchange and that should provide 8MB for 100dirham/10BD,I hope in Bahrain, out of the 6 odd operators, one of them should at least build its network, rather than the stupid wireless stuff going on.. maybe when LTE comes into reality, then we can seriously talk
