Asiacell has announced the launch of its third generation (3G) mobile phone services in Iraq.
“Iraq has been underserved for far too long, it’s time to bring 21st century wireless service to this important economic hub in the world,” said Faruk Mustafa Rasool (pictured), Asiacell chairman.
Asiacell has spent more than $1bn on system modernization and 3G licenses for additional spectrum, a move that marks the huge investments the company is doing for better fit to the competitive telecom market in Iraq.
The company said its network has the capability to reach 4G/LTE speeds quickly as the telecommunications infrastructure in Iraq improves.
Amer Sunaa, Asiacell Chief Executive Officer, said:
“We are very excited to launch 3G in Iraq. With the benefits of 3G, subscribers in Iraq can enjoy a faster, better mobile experience than ever before. All our customers will celebrate 3G launch with tailored incredible offers designed for each and every one.”
