ITC partners with Huawei for key Saudi 5G network expansion

RIYADH, February 27, 2021

Integrated Telecom Company (ITC), a leader in telecom and ICT services in Saudi Arabia, has joined hands with top global ICT infrastructure provider Huawei to start implementing the second phase of 5G infrastructure expansion through addition of 1,000 new sites. 
This expansion will increase ITC digital connectivity and bring ultra-high-speed internet to businesses and residents, said the statement from the Saudi group. 
The increased rollout of 5G technology will enable high-speed broadband through Fixed Wireless Access in areas where fiber coverage is lacking.
ITC is a key player in the kingdom's 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, said the statement.
As 5G becomes a reality for more people, the expansion will also support the Internet of Things, enabling smart homes, offices, and public spaces, it added. 
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, said a top official. 
CEO Osama Al Dosary said: "ITC will continue expanding 5G coverage in Saudi Arabia, adding to the growing list of areas with access to the enhanced capabilities this technology brings. With 1000 sites providing 5G, more customers in the kingdom 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," added Al Dosary.-TradeArabia News Service
