Internet in Kuwait. We know how you feel about it. Copper lines, clogged hubs, days to download a movie, streaming can be next to impossible. Well there’s a new player in town offering something different, they guarantee speeds, so if they say 6mbps, that’s what you’ll get.
WiMD is a young and aspiring privately owned company offering high speed wireless internet and data solutions to residential and corporate customers in Kuwait. Their services have been available for corporate clients for a couple of years and now they want to offer those services to the residential market. They see a future for Kuwait where broadband is as commonly accessible as electricity and running water.
WiMD differs from other ISPs because their wireless broadband doesn’t require a landline to work. The connection from WiMD is wireless so even if you do have a landline, which can be a major problem depending on which area of Kuwait you live in, you don’t need to worry about how much speed that line can handle.
How does this work? When you sign up for the service, WiMD will send a representative to your home to test the bandwidth speed you can receive at your location. They will then sell you the package that relates to the speed you can achieve. This is part of the transparency that they are striving for as a company. They won’t sell you an internet package promising something that it can’t deliver. When the speed is determined, an antenna is installed on your roof and connected to a router via an Ethernet cable inside your home. You’re then set up to receive wireless broadband internet.
They offer speeds starting at 6Mbps going up in 1Mbps increments all the way to 15Mbps. Because this is a wireless connection each user has a dedicated bandwidth so you don’t have to worry about how many other people in your neighborhood are online. Whichever speed you choose, WiMD guarantees you a pipe the width of your subscription. In other words, you will get your dedicated bandwidth at all times. Simply put, you get what you pay for. That means you will see exceptional upload/download ratios and you can expect speeds higher than you thought were possible.
The best part about the wireless broadband from WiMD? Unlimited usage! Some ISPs promise this but then tucked away in the fine print they have a provision to cap your usage. WiMD approach this differently. They are proud of their connections and actively encourage their customers to utilize them to their fullest potential. They have no limitations and no hidden usage policies. They also offer a 24 hour call center and are active on social media, twitter in particular, to keep customers up-to-date with anything they need to know.
WiMD currently provide coverage for the entire state of Kuwait, so if you’re looking for a fresh approach to internet, WiMD’s wireless broadband might be the solution you’ve been wishing for.
