Integrated Telecom begins second phase of its 5G coverage in Saudi Arabia with 1000 additional sites

This expansion will increase ITC digital connectivity and bring ultra-high-speed internet to businesses and residents

  

Riyadh: Integrated Telecom Company (ITC), a leader in telecom and ICT services, and HUAWEI, the leading global ICT infrastructure provider, started implementing the second phase of expanding the 5G infrastructure by adding 1000 new sites. This expansion will increase ITC digital connectivity and bring ultra-high-speed internet to businesses and residents.

The increased rollout of 5G technology will enable high-speed broadband through Fixed Wireless Access in areas where fiber coverage is lacking. As ITC ensures 5G becomes a reality for more people, the expansion will also support the Internet of Things, enabling smart homes, offices, and public spaces. The 5G expansion will also support the digital transformation and help businesses adapt to new technologies to keep operating and overcome all technology challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eng. Osama Al-Dosary, CEO of ITC, said: "We will continue expanding 5G coverage in the Kingdom, adding to the growing list of areas with access to the enhanced capabilities this technology brings. With 1000 sites providing 5G, more customers in Saudi Arabia will have access to high speed communications, that will power the future of business, government, and consumer." "ITC acknowledges the support it receives from CITC in helping us drive Saudi Arabia's digital transformation journey," concluded Eng. Al-Dosary.

ITC is a key player in the Saudi telecom market, committed to the digital transformation of industry verticals such as Oil and Gas, Education, Healthcare, IoT, Gaming, and Entertainment. The expansion is part of ITC's comprehensive deployment plan of Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) services across the Kingdom, delivered in stages, with various new services and applications.
