Riyadh; Mobily has partnered with Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) to deploy a new software package on its 5G network in Saudi Arabia to boost upload speeds and enhance the user experience. This rollout is part of Mobily’s aim to provide a high quality network performance in line with Saudi Vision 2030.

Given the significant increase in data traffic due to the use of platforms such as video conferencing, the new software package - which enables 256 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) - will increase both network efficiency and uplink speeds for Mobily customers. This means a significantly improved user experience for Mobily subscribers while browsing the internet on their mobile devices.

The boost in network speed also results in better streaming experience and content sharing for users. The feature enables 5G consumers to enjoy higher data upload speeds, and significantly maximize 5G capabilities compared to the currently available speed.

The recent rollout was part of a series of enhancements conducted by Mobily, in collaboration with Ericsson, for the continuous improvement of network quality and speed. Upgraded digital solutions are key to meet the planned requirements for digital transformation in the Kingdom and as key enabler to realize Saudi Arabia vision 2030.
