Launched on August 20, 2002, the MMS Service (Multimedia Messaging Service) allows subscribers to communicate by sending and receiving sophisticated multimedia messages. The MMS service enables Fastlink’s subscribers to attach pictures and sound to mobile messages in exactly the same way as an email. Subscribers can, therefore, send a family photo with a recording of voices, or send a stored picture with music, or melodies for mobile ringers.
Mr. Michael Dagher, Fastlink’s CEO, said: “We have promised Fastlink’s subscribers and Jordanian citizens to keep Jordan at the forefront of worldwide cellular technology. Now, here we are fulfilling this long term commitment by launching for the first time in the Middle East region the MMS service. This service will gradually open horizons for new revolutionary applications, which will change perceptions of mobile phones and the status of this device in our everyday lives.”
Mr. Declan O’Mahony, General Manager for Jinny Software in the Middle East added: “Fastlink have demonstrated yet again that they are one of the most forward-thinking operators in the region. We are delighted to be the enabler for Fastlink’s MMS service, which complements the existing Jinny Messaging and Data platforms at Fastlink.”
