YooMee 4G Internet is a high speed wireless access to the World Wide Web via Mobile WiMAX technology, says Stephane Abrahams, General Manager of YooMee 4G Internet.

The General Manager spoke earlier today in Yaoundé, Cameroon in a press briefing ahead of the official launching of the fourth generation internet service provider.

YooMee Stephane Abrahams said, provides the freedom to move within the network's coverage area, allowing for instant access anywhere. Thus makes it different from other internet service providers.

The speed provided by the technology allows YooMe clients to listen to online music, watch online videos with no delay, and download heavy files with no problem as demonstrated during the press briefing.

In the words of Staphane Abrahams, “with YooMee , you have the connection you need and the freedom to move. Use it at home. Fire it up on the road. No more battling for bandwidth on insecure wi-fi hotspots. No more searching for coffee shops, just to find an Internet connection. No more paying for Web access at hotels. YooMee goes wherever you need it in your city. And our 4G network is arriving in more cities all the time”.

Launched in the country in May 2011, the internet service provider now counts 45 base stations deployed in Yaoundé and 48 in Douala. However, the General Manager said they have road map for implementation that will cover more than 30% of the Cameron territory.

The Technical Director of YooMee, Andy Tshilumba Muzembe expantiated during the Yaoundé press briefing that for now they are based in areas of huge population agglomerations like Makepe, Bonajo, Akwa amongst others. But this doesn’t mean they will end in these areas, extension to other parts of the cities will be based on necessity.

Asked to comment on their key priorities, YooMee General Manager said “ we want a wider coverage, mobility with more people having access to our network. We are going to work hard to extend this network in terms of coverage as continue to communicate more with our customers to explain the benefits of our network, do more in terms of customers’ care and then we will move with innovations”.

Talking to this reporter after the press briefing, Stephane Abrahams YooMee does not only end at providing internet services to its customers as its services extend to humanitarian.
