June 6, 2018

Ooredoo Kuwait has launched 5G network for its customers in key location of its head office at Soor Street in Kuwait City.

Earlier, Ooredoo Qatar became the first global telecom operator to launch 5G services in the capital city of Doha on a commercial basis.

Ooredoo Kuwait CEO Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani said: “We are exercising our role as a private sector entity in the New Kuwait Vision 2035, and we aspire to deliver comprehensive telecom services with international standards in Kuwait.”

Ooredoo Kuwait CTO Shaimaa Al-Najdi said the company launched 5G in test sites, which delivers up to 10 Gbps Internet speed.

Shaimaa Al-Najdi said that usage of the technology will depend on the users’ devices and their readiness to connect to this new network.

Ooredoo earlier announced the completion of a network upgrade in more than 1,100 locations across Kuwait, aimed at increasing network capacity. Ooredoo completed the major project in a record time of 5 months, without compromising the services to customers.

Ooredoo has also increased the sites with updated LTE-A bandwidth to better serve the latest and upcoming models of routers and smartphones.
