Manama, Bahrain – Following the successful and first commercial pilot of 5G technology in the Kingdom in June 2018, VIVA Bahrain, the leading telecommunication provider in Bahrain, announced the completion of 5G readiness in key locations across Bahrain. VIVA Bahrain is now the first operator in the Kingdom to enable adoption of 5G service and is planning further roll-outs of 5G across the country.

The newly upgraded network will ultimately enable customers to enjoy super-fast internet and smart technologies driven by the Internet of Things including virtual reality, ultimate real-time gaming, 3D 8K video, as well as providing a platform for artificial intelligence and connected cars.

VIVA announced that its early adoption of 5G technology despite the current limited availability of devices and services worldwide is driven by VIVA’s vision to spearhead the Digital transformation of Bahrain and transform the telecommunications landscape. With this launch, VIVA reinforces its commitment to strengthening Bahrain's leading digital position in the region, in line with the country’s Vision 2030.

VIVA Bahrain was the first operator in Bahrain to commercially pilot 5G back in June 2018 with a major showcase in City Centre Mall in the presence of His Excellency the Minister of Telecommunications and Transportation, the head of the TRA, and other key executives from the industry.
