- PRESS RELEASE
In a new report, the Arab Advisors Group analyzed the residential WiMAX broadband rates in nine Arab countries (Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and UAE).
The Arab Advisors Group research report on regional WiMAX offerings revealed that the effective total monthly cost of residential WiMAX (for the average 2 Mbps speed) in the Arab region averages $76 per month. Kuwait's WiMAX operators offer the highest rates in the Arab region, while the lowest rates are available in Jordan.
A new report, "WiMAX Rates in the Arab World: A Regional Comparison 2012" was released to the Arab Advisors Group's Telecoms Strategic Research Service subscribers on April 24, 2012. This report can be purchased from the Arab Advisors Group for only $950.
The 28-page report, which has 17 detailed exhibits, provides a comprehensive analysis of WiMAX residential rates offered by the main WiMAX operators in the Arab countries during March 2012. Moreover, the report details the download speeds available in each country that offers residential WiMAX services.
Any investment in this report will count towards an annual Strategic Research Service subscription should the service be acquired within three months from purchasing the report, or could count towards attending Arab Advisors' 2nd Smart Handheld Summit 2012 on November 26 & 27, 2012 at The Address Dubai Marina Hotel in Dubai - UAE. Telecom and Media operators can send up to 2 delegates to attend at no charge. Press members can also attend at no charge.
"It is noteworthy that a number of regional WiMAX operators bundle some free local VoIP minutes within their broadband plans. This is done in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia." Hussam Barhoush, Project Manager at Arab Advisors Group stated in the report.
When including the GDP per capita and GDP per household in the analysis, the Arab Advisors Group devised the WiMAX Affordability Measure (WAM). Basically, the total annual cost of WiMAX broadband in a country was calculated as a % of that country's GDP per capita and GDP per household, whereby the higher the score the less affordable the service would be in that country.
"The UAE ranks first in the WiMAX Affordability Measure for the 2 Mbps speed average" Hussam Barhoush, Arab Advisors Group's Project Manager added.
The Arab Advisors Group's team of analysts in the region has already produced close to 3,000 reports on the Arab World's communications, media and financial markets. The reports can be purchased individually or received through an annual subscription to Arab Advisors Group's Strategic Research Services (Media and Telecom).
To date, Arab Advisors Group has served over 665 global and regional companies by providing reliable research analysis and forecasts of Arab communications markets to these clients.
