Struggling US vendor Motorola said Tuesday that it has been awarded a managed services contract by Zain Iraq.

Under the terms of the deal, Motorola will focus on improving Zain Iraq’s network performance, as well as operation and maintenance of the network and training for its technical support team, leaving Zain free to focus on its customers. Exact financial terms for the three year multi-million dollar contract were not released.

Zain Iraq is the leading mobile provider in the country with over 10.7 million subscribers as of September 2009, ahead of Asiacell’s 7.6 million, Korek Telecom’s 2.6 million and Sanatel’s 485,000.

Iraq has a mobile penetration rate of 70.68 per cent since September 2009.
