Zain launches integrated 5G network in Kuwait
Zain has launched the first integrated 5G technology on its network in Kuwait, which will provide high-speed communications with high efficiency.
Fifth-generation technology represents a quantum leap in the operational efficiency of its network which will make it one of the first companies in Kuwait and the region to adopt this solution to meet the ever-growing digital needs of its individual and enterprise customers, Zain says.
Zain has invited its customers to experience 5G technology during the month and enjoy the high speeds that will be available in several prominent locations, an early initiative for its customers to benefit from the great mobile experience of 5G services. Zain will continue developing and expanding the 5G network gradually across Kuwait until the devices are available, expected during the course of 2019.
Zain Kuwait’s Chief Technology Officer Nawaf Al Gharabally said: “Telecom services are one of the most important sectors in accelerating economic growth and promoting trade. Obviously, existing mobile networks will not be able to satisfy the future needs of the telecommunications sector. 5G technologies will contribute to the digital transformation and prosperity of Kuwait, supporting the leadership’s future vision for the country and its people.”
Al Gharabally continued, “The launch of this new technology will help Zain to unleash its full potential in the digital community, enhance ICT cooperation on multiple fronts and stimulate the company’s efforts to become the leading provider of digital lifestyle”
He explained that the practical applications offered by these new technologies will expand the scope of the company’s services in the enterprise sector and B2B companies, who benefit enormously from high speeds, as well as enhancing the customer experience, and the creation of new business.
This move will take the company’s customer base to next-generation technology in data transfer and Internet usage. The coverage will start in some areas in succession, with the plan covering the most important places and vital areas in the country soon.
“The fifth-generation services will provide a comprehensive change in the use of the Internet and will help introduce and deliver unique products and services in the business, smart cities, and Internet sectors. The technology solutions will also meet the growing demand for data services,” said Al Gharabally.
