End users commuting back and forth between cities are able to take advantage of Mada's wireless and portable WiMAX solutions. In addition to appealing to the public, Mada has also given corporate and retail entities viable solutions that have created unprecedented brand loyalty in the market, with the network being powered entirely by Motorola .

This recent expansion across Jordan offers better quality and faster wireless broadband services to more people nationwide, enabling optimal performance, flexibility, security and service quality," said Ali Amer, vice president and general manager, Motorola Solutions EMEA.
Mada launched commercial service on the Motorola end-to-end WiMAX network in March 2009.
