Zain announces its expansion of 5G services in 10 Saudi regions

After launching the world’s first carbon-neutral 5G network, Zain Saudi Arabia has announced a new expansion in its 5G coverage, adding 10 cities to its extensive deployment map.

The newly covered cities include Al-Aflaj, Al-Lith, Al Qunfudhah, Al Badayea, Samtah, Shaqraa, Al Khobar, Dhiba, Al Bukayriyah, and Rabigh.

All of these cities now enjoy high-speed digital 5G services.

This expansion reaffirms Zain Saudi Arabia’s commitment to its strategy of providing the latest communication services to all regions of the Kingdom, delivering the best experiences to customers, and enhancing the capabilities and competitiveness of the telecommunications and digital services sector across the country.

These efforts contribute to the overall digital transformation system in the Kingdom, elevating the quality of life for all members of society by enhancing the current services and opening avenues for future innovations.

Engineer Mohammed bin Abdulaziz AlNajidi, the CEO of Engineering Affairs, stated that this expansion reflects Zain Saudi Arabia’s commitment to sustainability, focusing on leveraging technology to serve every individual and institution throughout the Kingdom.

This supports the comprehensiveness of communication services and digital solutions, aiming to achieve comprehensive digital transformation and improve the quality of life according to the goals of Saudi Vision 2030.

In the context of their commitment to harnessing technology for sustainable development, Zain Saudi Arabia is working on green technology initiatives under their comprehensive Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy. Through a strategic partnership with the Red Sea International, they launched the world’s first carbon-neutral 5G network at the “Six Senses The Dunes” resort in the Saudi desert.

This network relies on 100% renewable energy, including over 750,000 solar panels and specially designed towers, achieving three main objectives: environmental protection, reduction of emissions through clean energy usage, and minimizing visual distortion.

This project will contribute to localizing the telecommunications and information technology sector, reducing carbon emissions to support the Kingdom’s efforts and targets to reduce carbon emissions by over 278 million tons annually by 2030, ultimately reaching carbon neutrality by 2060.

It’s worth noting that this expansion aligns with the company’s significant growth in the use of 5G applications, adopting new solutions that mimic next-generation digital solutions, particularly in areas such as artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, the Internet of Things, cloud computing services, and more.
