Viva gearing up for 5G launch

29 May 2018

Viva Bahrain, the Kingdom’s third largest cellco by subscribers, has said that it will be ready to roll out a 5G network by the end of the year or early next year, when the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) makes the spectrum available, writes Gulf Daily News. Viva has reportedly already begun testing 5G equipment in Bahrain and is setting its sights on becoming the first mobile operator to commercially launch the service. The TRA will offer 5G frequencies as part of its National Telecommunications Plan.
