Ericsson and Umniah Expand 3G and 4G Network Coverage in Jordan

The Memorandum of understanding signed to boost network capacity and extend coverage in major Jordanian cities.

Ericsson and Umniah have recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for expanding the 3G and 4G network in major cities in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

Ericsson will provide future-proof Ericsson Radio System products and solutions, which are flexible to changing demands with multi-band and multi-layer technology. The expansion uses 10 megahertz (MHz) of the spectrum, including 5MHz refarmed from 3G to 4G and an additional 5MHz acquired, allowing for increased network capacity.

With the expansion, network coverage will be extended through additional sectors thereby providing 4G in areas where it is currently unavailable. The additional spectrum and upgraded infrastructure will enable Umniah to handle more data traffic and cater to the growing demand for mobile broadband services and enhanced and faster connectivity.

We aim to significantly improve our network capacity, expand network coverage, and deliver superior user experience for our customers. Entering into this agreement with Ericsson supports us in reaching a wider population and helps us in meeting the growing demand in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
