15 Mar 2013

Following the launch of a limited Long Term Evolution (LTE) network last year, Viva Kuwait has announced that its 4G service is now available to all customers. The cellco says that subscribers will be able to enjoy faster speeds at no extra cost or additional fees, and that those users with LTE-compatible handsets will automatically switch to the new network. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Viva launched 2G and 3G services in Kuwait in December 2008, and by the end of 2012 the provider had a subscriber market share of 21.2%.
