Internet in Jordan will be rocked with the Evolved HSPA [HSPA+] 21.6Mbps broadband connection, on a solid network that is covering 97% of Jordan, Zain, a pioneer telecommunication provider in Jordan, as another record to be added to the List of HSPA+ Networks, that includes 12 countries only!
Zain 21.6Mbps Broadband will be released to all soon, but I had the chance to start using it since yesterday as a giveaway from Zain to review for one month. It has been interesting so far, I just had to call Zain Customer Care to request activation for my SIM/USIM card, wait for approximately half an hour, then plug and play. First thing I did was for sure a connection speed test; results: Download Speed: 4.42Mbps [5MB File downloaded in 10 sec, 35MB in 1 min], and Upload Speed: 3.26Mbps. Connection speed depends on the USB Modem, and Location; HUAWEI USB modem given away is up to 7Mbps.
I couldn't use my Data & SMS SIM Card to connect through my mobile or Galaxy Tab, I asked the customer care again and they said that will happen soon, for now it can be only used along with the USB Modem.
I know you are asking about the prices now, but none is released yet. Enjoy the speed, stay away from tickets, plug and play.
