Said Rafiah Ibrahim, head of Ericsson for the Middle East and Africa: “I am glad that we continue a good cooperation with our long-term partner Zain. This new contract will accelerate Zain’s digital journey and build its digital infrastructure with the introduction of new services and virtual functions.  This will enable Zain to deliver the best possible user experience in two major cities in Iraq and meet the data demands of tomorrow in a timely manner.”

Zain Iraq CEO Ali Al Zahid said more. “Zain is committed to bringing the latest technology and cutting-edge services to its customers. Upgrading current networks with the latest technology to cater for increasing traffic volumes and enhanced customer experience is a key priority. It also reflects our commitment to providing the mobile community in Iraq with the highest quality of service available.

Network modernisation and adoption of new technologies are essential to meeting users’ demand for capacity and coverage. Modernising the network infrastructure of Zain Iraq’s network services will not only improve end-user experience through increased capacity, but also accommodate future needs, according to a press release.
