LINKdotNET expands to Jordan

Egyptian ISP LINKdotNET has set up a sister organisation in Jordan in an attempt to emulate its success in Egypt. It claims it will be the first ISP in Jordan to offer 24-hour customer support.

Egyptian based ISP LINKdotNET has set up a sister organisation in Jordan, hoping to emulate the success it has enjoyed in Egypt.

LINKdotNET will offer 24 hours a day customer support, which the company claims is a first in Jordan.

“It heartens us to unveil today a new player who will have a leading role in Jordan's internet market. It is our aim – by way of leveraging the synergies created by the coming together of Orascom Telecom's experience in the regional technology market, LINKdotNET experience in the Egyptian and regional Internet markets, and Fastlink's experience in the Jordanian telecom market – to stimulate and rejuvenate the Jordanian internet sector through a host of new technologies, quality services and value-added content,” said Mutaz Otaibi, general manager of LINKdotNET (Jordan).

LINKdotNET was formed in Egypt in June 2000 when top ISPs Link Egypt and InTouch merged to form a single company.

InTouch was the first ISP in Egypt, founded in 1992, whilst Link Egypt commenced operations three years later in 1995.

LINKdotNET hit the headlines recently when it teamed up with Microsoft’s MSN to launch the first international web portal to serve Arabs all over the world. The service included news, financial information and leisure services.
