Zain launches dedicated 5G Zone at the Avenues Phase 4 branch

KUWAIT: Zain, the
leading digital service provider in Kuwait, launched a dedicated 5G Zone that
offers customers the opportunity to experience the true capabilities of 5G
technology at its branch in the Avenues Mall, Phase 4 – Electra. The zone
offers Zain customers a hands-on experience to test various 5G applications and
learn about the huge capabilities behind this revolutionary new
technology. 

Zain recently
launched its 5G Internet bundles for postpaid customers after the company’s
announcement last May of the full readiness of its network for the commercial
launch of fifth generation wireless technology (5G), making it the first
operator to offer 5G technology in the GCC region via the Kuwaiti market with
nationwide coverage of all areas.

Zain’s
newly-launched 5G Zone, located inside the company’s branch in the Avenues
Mall, Phase 4 – Electra, offers customers a live, hands-on experience of 5G
technology compared side by side with the previous generation network. The
available demos feature various applications, including online video gaming,
entertainment devices, video streaming services, downloading heavy files, smart
home devices, and more. Zain will be dedicating more 5G Zones in other branches
soon.

Zain dedicated
this zone to offer customers a direct and interactive experience of 5G speeds
instead of relying on traditional online speed tests. In addition, the zone
offers customers an opportunity to explore the huge capabilities behind this
revolutionary new technology, and learn about how it enhances users’ everyday
lives and boosts productivity. Through the zone, customer can also ask about
Zain’s multiple 5G Internet bundles and select the plan that best suits their
personal and professional needs.

Last May, Zain
unveiled that it succeeded in designing an integrated network for 5G services
built on a world-class infrastructure. This came after the official
announcement made by Kuwait’s Communication and Information Technology
Regulatory Authority (CITRA) to grant Zain the needed licenses for telecom
operators to launch 5G services in the Kuwaiti market. This technology will
contribute to fully launching the Zain’s potential within the digital community
and further reinforcing its leadership in the ICT sector. To commemorate the
commercial launch of the service, Zain temporarily changed the name of its
network to “Hello 5G” for 48 hours.

Zain has always
been one of the first companies to offer the latest generations of telecommunications
technologies. As the telecom sector is currently directing towards digital
transformation with significant pace, it is evident that current mobile telecom
networks will not be capable of satisfying the future needs of the sector with
what is currently available. For that, Zain’s impending commercial launch of 5G
services comes to keep up with the fast-paced and ever-evolving lifestyle
patterns of the community on all levels.

The revolutionary
fifth generation wireless technology (5G) offers endless applications that can
be summarized in three main uses. The first use is enhanced mobile broadband
(eMBB), which can be considered a direct extension and progression of the
current 4G LTE networks, offering faster connections, higher throughput and
more capacity.

The second use is
Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communications (URLCC), which means a 5G network is
reliable for mission critical applications that requires uninterrupted and
robust data exchange. The third use is Massive Machine-Type Communications
(mMTC), which will be enabled by 5G networks to serve as an infrastructure and
an enabler for the new applications that are expected to mature in the near
future.

Reports and
forecasts refer to the huge potentials that will be offered by 5G technology,
as well as the many opportunities it will offer for the various industries,
such as e-commerce, retail, government transactions, energy, public and safety
facilities, healthcare, public transportation, media, entertainment, and
financial services. Furthermore, 5G services will enhance essential services,
and will further push the telecom sector to a new phase of growth.

5G technologies
will offer ultimate access, where people and smart devices within the community
will communicate with each other in entirely new fashions. The flow of
information will be smooth and continuous, while the highest degrees of
coverage and unlimited speeds will be possible with this generation of
networks.

The real value of
digital information lies not just within the information itself, but rather in
the new innovative services that can be obtained from them. The nourishment of
digital economy will be possible, as well as achieving positive change in
manufacturing methods, current lifestyles, and more. All this will ultimately
enhance the lives of people for the better
