  • WIMAX in Africa
  • .Wimax in Africa In the recent years, Africa has truly proved itself as one of the leading suppliers of the WiMAX indus- try. AccessKenya is one of the largest WiMAX net- works in East Africa. They provide wireless broad- band for residential use in the cities of Nairobi and Mombasa in Kenya. MTN Uganda has made it their goal to provide countrywide WiMAX ac- cess in Uganda, and has already installed several operating networks. 1120 Avenue of the Americas 7th Floor New York, New York 10036 Tel: 212.993.5899 Fax: 212.993.5898 Toll Free: 1.877.25.WIMAX www.quantum-co.com
  • .Wimax in Africa The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA), which regulates telecommunications in South Africa, issued four licenses for com- mercial WiMAX services to the Internet Service Providers iBurst, Sentech, Neotel, and Telkom. South Africa currently hosts a few scattered operational WiMAX networks, but with the issuance of these licenses, the country is ex- pected see many more networks appear in the upcoming months. Delays in the award of licenses for providing WiMAX services and the limited roll-out of services that have been licensed has resulted in dampening of its poten- tial impact. Only those companies that have already deployed WiMAX have appreciated its impact. These companies are all using Telkom’s scaled down version of wimax. According to studies conducted in 2008, 8% of corpora- tions in South Africa have adopted WiMAX options as part of their connec- tivity mix in 2007 but they did not use wimax as a preferred form of connec- tivity and deployed it where no other options were available, such as in rural areas or areas with rough terrain. 1120 Avenue of the Americas 7th Floor New York, New York 10036 Tel: 212.993.5899 Fax: 212.993.5898 Toll Free: 1.877.25.WIMAX www.quantum-co.com

In Nigeria, Galaxy Wireless Communications Limited has launched the coun- try’s first Mobile broadband service based on the IEEE 802.16e standard. XS Broadband is also a major contributor to the install- ment of WiMAX in Nigeria and currently holds licenses for 24 of the 36 Nigerian states. Alvarion Ltd. also announced in june 09 that it was chosen by Mobitel, Sri Lanka’s national mobile services provider, to offer 802.16e WiMAX solutions to areas in Nigeria with little internet service. The Middle East and Africa were the fastest growing regions for WiMAX in 2008. 1120 Avenue of the Americas 7th Floor New York, New York 10036 Tel: 212.993.5899 Fax: 212.993.5898 Toll Free: 1.877.25.WIMAX www.quantum-co.com
