Middle East Com: With LTE deployed in three of your territories, you are one of the region’s leaders. What have you learned from your LTE deployments and what are your plans for the rest of the Group?
 
Scott Gegenheimer: "We are firm believers that mobile broadband is the growth opportunity of mobile networks and so we believe our early investment in 3.5G and 4G technology places us in the right position to benefit from the development in this area."

Middle East Com: As voice revenues continue to decline, more focus is on data. Zain’s data growth is strong. What do you attribute this to, and how do you plan to continue the growth?
 
Scott Gegenheimer: "The strong growth in non-voice revenues is as a result of a concerted effort on our part to bring mobile digital services to our customers and ensure the entire eco-system from networks to devices is optimized for high quality services.
 
Investing in next generation networks and partnering with strong content providers is essential to the continuing uptake of digital services, as is the availability of devices suitable to access such services through."
