In this paper, 3G licensing and deployment in Jordan and the implications for others in the Levantine region is studied. Jordan has the highest mobile penetration rate in the Levantine region of the middle east just following the oil-rich Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. It has probably been the first country to incept mobile services and mobile uptake has been so fierce that mobile penetration has exceeded that of fixed line telephony. Jordan also launched GSM services at the end of 2001. An outline of the development of the Jordanian telecommunication sector leading to 3G readiness is highlighted.
