Siemens wins Kuwaiti mobile network contract
Kuwait, Business, 5/28/1999
The German Siemens group won an order to establish the second network for mobile phones in Kuwait, which is estimated at 105 million German marks.
Siemens competed with France Telecom, Ericsson, Alcatel, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Motorola and Philips.
Seimens will establish a two-channel network for Kuwait's National Mobile Telecommunication Company (NMTC) to help enable a greater capacity and "speedy attainment of countrywide mobile phone coverage," Seimens said. It added that the network will help NTMC offer services including short message service and prepaid service.
International companies show great interest in the Arab telecommunications market as it is one of the most important growing markets, as its growth percentage reaches more than 45% annually.
The Arab states witness competition for establishing communications networks in the United Arab Emirates, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Tunisia and Morocco, in addition to renewing the old networks in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Egypt, Oman, Jordan and Algeria.
