Jordanian telco Umniah said that its WiMAX network, which is branded as Umax, now covers some 80% of the Kingdom's population, giving the operator a broadband market share of about 20%.

The company doubled the number of its Umax stations in Amman over the past few months and increased the number of its radio base stations, while also increasing the number of Umniah's towers in all governorates.

Umniah's ongoing expansion of its service coverage across Jordan is stated to be in line with the country's national ICT strategy which aims to boost internet penetration in the country to 50% by end of 2011. Jordan's telecoms regulator, the TRC, aims for more than 60% coverage before 30th September this year.

Ihab Hinnawi, Umniah's CEO, said that the operator aims at contributing towards strengthening the Kingdom's "e-readiness" in order to promote Jordan as a regional ICT hub.

A subsidiary of Batelco Group, Umniah was the first operator to introduce WiMAX wireless broadband services in Jordan. Currently, Umniah serves over two million mobile subscribers.
