The first Mobile WiMAX launch for the region may interest those with a commercial property in Dubai.

As a result of joining with UAE telcoms provider du, Motorola is set to launch a network to provide mobile connectivity on the Dubai Metro system.

Hatem Bamatraf, senior vice president of network development at du, said: "Offering city-wide internet access on the Dubai Metro is part of ongoing efforts to ensure our customers enjoy the convenience of exceptional connectivity, on-demand, wherever they travel."

He added that du is looking forward to providing a first-rate WiMAX network which will benefit Dubai commuters.

WiMAX is set to give customers a high-speed service and real-time information on the go, according to Motorola. It forms part of the brand's initiative to facilitate world-class WiMAX technology, services and solutions to both global and regional telecoms firms.

Last year Motorola signed an agreement with Pakistan to deliver a WiMAX contract, in collaboration with wi-tribe Pakistan.
