Zain brings commercial 5G to Bahrain

Zain Bahrain has launched commercial 5G using equipment from Ericsson.

The network will allow customers to benefit from super high-speed data, extremely low latency and ultra-high reliability, and enables highly connected technologies trends such as virtual reality, augmented reality, and the internet of things (IoT).  

Zain Vice-Chairman and Group CEO Bader Al Kharafi said: “Zain Bahrain's 5G launch demonstrates our continuous commitment to investing in digitalisation and the latest technologies for the benefit of our customers and playing our key role in the Kingdom’s Economic Vision 2030.”

Zain Bahrain will be expanding 5G coverage across the Kingdom throughout 2020 and will continue to grow the 5G network in 2021 and beyond. Furthermore, the operator is also modernising and expanding its 4G LTE network for an improved mobile experience on both 5G and 4G devices.  

The commercial launch in Bahrain follows the launch of 5G services in Zain Kuwait and Zain Saudi Arabia during 2019.
