Al-Ayoub added “We will continue to invest and further improve our services and network in order to provide our customers with a fully digitalized experience”.
Acting Chief Technology Officer, Engineer Shaima Al-Najdi stated that this advanced technology is aligned with the launch of the 5G Network, and that the eSIM technology “will enable our customers to seamlessly switch between personal and business accounts, enjoy data like never before and take advantage of our voice services on our network, as well enjoy multi-profile features”.
Al-Najdi further explained, “The eSIMs are embedded SIMs that will enable Ooredoo to offer a fully digitized user experience without having to insert the normal SIM card in the smart device. This is directly aligned with Ooredoo’s digital strategy which is to empower Kuwait’s society by driving digital transformation and enrich people’s digital lives.” She added, “eSIM will also be crucial for the ‘Internet of Things’. Without the need for a physical SIM card, many devices, such as watches and other wearables, can be connected to the mobile network, completely transforming the digital experience at home or at the office.”
It is worth mentioning that with this advanced technology and alongside our 5G roll-out, customers will be able to switch between their private and business numbers in a single phone without the need to physically swap sim cards.
Providing and adopting the latest in telecom technology
Al-Ayoub reiterated Ooredoo’s commitment to providing and adopting the latest in telecom technology, despite the array of challenges, especially in a dynamic market such as Kuwait where customers are tech savvy. Al-Ayoub added, “Earlier this year, we showcased the great speed and power of the 5G network, which will be launched in selected areas this year as we will gradually launch it across Kuwait. We also launched the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max last month, and we will be launching the iPhone XR on Friday 26 October with the strongest offer in Kuwait.
The Internet of the Future
Ooredoo launched 5G mobile internet in test sites, which delivers a speed of up to 10 Gbps. This came in an announcement made last June as the company launched 5G internet in test sites in preparation to deliver this service to customers. The launch came in tandem with the international Ooredoo Group’s plans to launch this technology across its markets, after it launched the new high-speed mobile internet in Doha through Ooredoo Qatar.
It is worth mentioning that towards the end of last year, Ooredoo announced the completion of a major network upgrade operation in various locations across Kuwait, aimed at increasing network capacity by upgrading the current infrastructure.
