Huawei and Mobily are increasing their cooperation.

Saudi Arabia’s Etihad Etisalat Company (Mobily) has signed a contract with Huawei to develop the quality of its services and reduce operating costs of networks.

The deal was inked on the sidelines of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Under the agreement, Mobily will launch a simple network this year in a bid to restructure operating expenses and to be ready for self-operating in the future.
This collaboration with Huawei is expected to support Mobily’s infrastructure, along with accelerating plans to carry out digitalisation, which is part of Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030, Mobily CTO Mazid Al Harbi said.

In February 2018, the two Asian telecom service providers inked a contract to try fifth generation (5G) wireless network for the first time in Saudi Arabia.
