Ooredoo Kuwait joins rivals in launching 5G home broadband

21 Jun 2019

Ooredoo Kuwait has joined its rivals Zain and Viva in launching a commercial 5G home modem device and associated data plans – matching Zain and Viva’s KWD45 (USD148) monthly cost for a 500GB package, plus a KWD65 1TB bundle. Ooredoo is offering a Huawei 5G ‘CPE Pro’ Router (H112-370) device, claiming download speeds ‘up to 2.3Gbps’. The launch follows last month’s decision by the country’s Communication and Information Technology Regulatory Authority (CITRA) to grant 3.5GHz 5G technology licences. 5G smartphone launches are yet to be announced.
