Zain Kuwait claims national Vo5G launch

31 May 2022

Zain Kuwait has announced the launch of voice-over-5G (Vo5G), claiming a global first in terms of a commercial Vo5G service with ‘nationwide coverage’. The operator says Vo5G is now available in ‘all areas’ of Kuwait, initially on the Samsung Galaxy S22 range of devices. Zain’s press release says that the Vo5G technology offers customers ‘an unprecedented experience with ultra-fast internet while making crystal-clear voice calls on compatible smartphones without interruption’, with the launch proceeding after extensive tests to assess the readiness of its network and its technical capabilities to operate the service ‘at the highest quality on a nationwide level.’

Vo5G is provided for compatible device owners without any additional fees, enabling high-quality voice calls simultaneously with usage of high speed internet, streaming services and data-hungry apps. The service is hosted on Zain’s 5G Standalone (SA 5G) network, deployed earlier this year.
