3.6GHz WiMAX service launched

Alvarion and Mundo Startel today announced the expansion of WiMAX services throughout Angola.

The network expansion using Alvarion’s BreezeMAX solution at the 3.6 GHz frequency band follows Mundo Startel’s decision to launch their fixed-line ISP operations.

“Broadband services are highly essential for the development of Angola’s growing population which currently stands at over 13 million. This project will enhance the everyday life of people, and allow them access to new opportunities,” says Paulo Garcia, Managing Director of Mundo Startel.

“We are happy to expand our partnership with Alvarion as we consider Alvarion as a strong partner who is helping us realise our ambition of providing a nationwide footprint for broadband. Alvarion’s leading market position along with a state-of-the-art WiMAX solution made it a natural choice for this important project.”

“Angola’s demand for broadband connectivity coupled with the lack of wired infrastructure makes WiMAX technology an ideal solution for the country,” says Tzvika Friedman, President and CEO of Alvarion.

“Alvarion is proud to continue supporting Mundo Startel in bringing broadband services to its customers. Alvarion’s widely-deployed WiMAX solutions provide flexibility and scalability necessary to grow the networks overtime with the ability to continue adding tailored value-added services.”
