Jordanian operator Umniah has launched mobile broadband using 3.75G technology.

The service, which is branded as 'Evo', is capable of downlink speeds of up 42.2Mbps, according to Umniah.

Umniah paid JD50 million ($70.5m) for a 3G licence in January 2012 and invested a further JD50 million sum in deploying the network, which included about 1500 3.75G base stations.

Ihab Hinnawi, CEO, Umniah, said that Evo was the outcome of "hard work and thorough research that aimed to develop an optimal internet experience".

"Evo brings along an exceptional experience for our customers, who can now enjoy a technological revolution ensuring safe internet with effective and affordable packages," Hinnawi said.

Umniah's mobile competitors, Orange Jordan and Zain, have both already launched 3G services.
