Zain launches Saudi-Kuwait 5G roaming

25 Nov 2019

Zain Group has announced a Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regional first with the launch of international 5G roaming between its mobile networks in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Zain clarified that, although other MENA operators have introduced 5G roaming (e.g. Vodafone Qatar recently launched a Qatari-UK service), this is the first MENA intra-region commercial 5G roaming launch. Zain also claimed users travelling between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia can enjoy ‘download speeds reaching as high as 500Mbps for both outbound and inbound roaming’.
