Orange Jordan claimed to be the first to launch commercial 5G services in the country and was the second Orange unit in the Middle East and North Africa to deploy next-generation connectivity.
In a statement, Orange Middle East and Africa chief executive Jerome Henique said: “Orange Jordan is the second Orange country to launch 5G in the Middle East and Africa enabling massive development for main infrastructure and accordingly accelerated digital transformation, smart cities, and many use cases in diverse industries such as entertainment, health, manufacturing, education and transportation”.
The Orange Jordan 5G Launched was announced by the unit’s CEO Philippe Mansour yesterday (July 11), at the Innovation Hub in the Orange Digital Village in Amman.
Mansour said at the launch: “We are proud to be in the lead of the digital development in Jordan. We will provide 5G as a responsible digital leader that contributes to digital transformation and the culture of innovation to drive sustainable development and keep everyone connected to all that matters to them. This game-changing technology will allow us all to discover new opportunities and can be utilized to promote economic growth, job creation, and enhance the quality of life in Jordan”.
Packages will be available to post and prepaid lines, as well as businesses. The launch comes after Orange gained its 5G airwaves licence in February with the Telecommunication Regulatory Commission. Orange stated it is the first provider to offer 5G in Jordan.
