Zain Saudi Arabia, better known as Zain KSA, has completed its first 5G call.

Eng. Sultan bin Abdulaziz AlDeghaither, CEO of Zain KSA said, "This is one of the first 5G call experiences in the region, and one of the first in the world without using voice-call apps. We have managed to tap into unprecedented speeds via 5G technology, demonstrating once again the active role Zain KSA plays in the ICT sector. This milestone also reflects Zain’s relentless pursuit of state-of-the-art technology without compromising on quality."

He said more. "Our aspirations at Zain KSA go way beyond 5G, as we continue to work towards faster speeds and higher quality across our networks in the future. The Saudi ICT sector is witnessing a major renaissance in terms of service quality and network penetration."

The 5G test is the latest achievement for 5G in Saudi Arabia. Earlier this year, plans were announced for Saudi Arabia to have the largest 5G rollout in the Middle East. Saudi Telecom Company, better known as STC, has also signed a number of 5G deals to bring services to the kingdom.
