We are a fast growing internet service provider and operator and we will always commit to providing our Jordanian market with the latest technologies and services that will ensure an enjoyable and secure internet experience. This field is dynamic and is advancing quickly especially when it comes to the exchange of data; this is why such exchange platforms are important as they help relay and spread the latest developments in this industry."
Hinnawi added, "This event has grown to become a crucial catalyst to the growth and development of internet in the Middle East. Umniah is proud to have partnered with the MENOG 11 in Jordan and we look forward to future collaborations.

As MENOG Chair Osama I. Al-Dosary explained, "MENOG is concerned with Internet operations and its technical community. It's all about experience sharing and education of this community. This goes hand in hand with the objectives of the RENs (Research Education Networks), especially given that the Internet grew out of RENs."
