Riyadh – Saudi Telecom Company (STC) was chosen as the best digital company in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, according to a recent ranking by Forbes magazine for the Top 100 Digital Companies around the world.

Coming in the 44th place, STC was the top MENA company on the list, according to a press release.

The company’s results reflect developments in Saudi digital infrastructure, especially after Saudi Arabia advanced 16 places and ranked 38th in the 2019 Global Competitiveness Index, largely thanks to progress in adopting information and communications technology (ICT),

My STC achieved great interaction as 95% of the company’s services can be accessed through the platform on smart devices, including free deliveries to the clients.

Apple, Microsoft, and Samsung led the list, in that order, while another Arab company made the list, as the UAE-based Emirates Telecommunications Group (Etisalat) came in the 49th place.
