Bahraini WiMAX operator, Menatelecom, has extended its managed services contract with Motorola for the rest of 2011.

The extension to the contract will allow Menatelecom to continue the expansion of its WiMAX network for consumers and enterprises.

The operator, which offers broadband speeds of up to 18Mbps, plans to offer new services including nomadic broadband data for its customers in Bahrain in 2011.

Menatelecom originally signed a managed services contract with Motorola back in July 2007, allowing the US telecom vendor to deploy and manage its nationwide 802.16e-based mobile WiMAX network.

The operator, which launched services in 2009, said it had more than 56,000 subscribers by November 2010.

Menatelecom is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kuwait Finance House of Bahrain.
