Providing High-Speed 4G Services to Residents and Businesses

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- AfricaCom 2012 -- Airspan Networks Inc., a leading provider of broadband wireless access networks, announced today that Guineanet, an Internet service provider in Equatorial Guinea, has been expanding its 4G broadband network operating in the 700 MHz frequency band, using Airspan's Air4G powerful, compact, macro base station.

The deployment commenced in June 2011 and has been expanding since, extending covering in Malabo, the country's capital, and Bata, the largest city in Equatorial Guinea. The Guineanet network offers customers high-speed broadband communication for data and VoIP services as well as Wi-Fi hotspots for multi-device connectivity. Having deployed the Airspan's Air4G, Guineanet will benefit from the product's integration of LTE and WiMAX platforms, enabling the company to migrate the network infrastructure to LTE simply and affordably, with a software-only upgrade.
