Swedish company Aptilo has provided wireless broadband service provider E-Networks with service management, prepayment options and policy controls for implementing Guyana's first mobile WiMax network, according to a joint press release from the companies.
E-Networks, Guyana's largest wireless broadband service provider, chose Aptilo to implement its pre-integrated wireless broadband solutions. The WiMax network and services were deployed in Guyana in seven days to serve capital city Georgetown and surrounding areas, positioning E-Networks to quickly deploy WiMax services throughout the rest of the country.
Aptilo's services will allow E-Networks' customers to buy prepaid vouchers to purchase packages, while also providing tailor-made service plans, built-in web portals, a prepaid system and payment modules to help make mobile internet accessible to the Guyanese population, said E-Network's founder and managing director, Vishok Persaud.
This is part of the company's broader plan to implement the WiMax network and services nationwide, working with Chinese telecoms equipment supplier Huawei.
