President Saleh launched last Wednesday Yemen Mobile service on the new system of the General Corporation of Wired and Wireless Telecommunication
On the occasion, the President delivered speech, saying “What is important is not the modernity of devices, but the modernity of minds and the way of dealing with these devices.” He wished Yemen Mobile success in providing advanced services.
Then, the President listened to an explanation on the project components and the capacity of the station (450 microwaves and 675 thousand lines in its first phase). Yemen Mobile is a highly technologically equipped and qualified firm that can move to the third generation, a system, as it is said, providing access to the internet with an amazing speed (153 kb per second) as well as numerous benefits in the areas of education and health.
