5G accounts for 40% of total wireless traffic for Zain Kuwait

Kuwaiti mobile telecommunications company Zain Kuwait said its 5G traffic accounts for more than 40 percent of its total wireless traffic.

The mobile operator in the Middle East said this is the highest share of 5G offload in the Gulf countries.

Zain Kuwait started the deployment of 5G networks in 2018. After two years of continuous development, 5G services have entered a period of high growth. Users are continuing to develop rapidly, and the proportion of 5G traffic has also been increasing continuously. This has resulted in positive revenue and profit growth for the operator, the release explained.

"Zain Kuwait has achieved the 5G subscriber penetration ratio of 23%, and the average DOU of its 5G subscribers is five times higher than that of its 4G subscribers. Zain Kuwait's mobile network also recorded revenue and profit growth of 4% and 13% year-over-year in Q2 2021. This is an outstanding achievement especially when there is no population dividend and the expatriate population in the country has been continuously decreasing," it said.

According to the release, Zain's 5G development leads the Kuwait telecom market, and its business success has been a result of its overall strategic objective to provide first-class 5G services for users in Kuwait.

"Zain Kuwait has firmly invested in 5G for the fastest network construction with the widest coverage, building a foundation for user experience," it added.
