Etisalat and Emaar come together to make 5G call from iconic tower ‘Burj Khalifa’ 
 
Dubai, 19 August 2019:  Following its global milestones achieved in 5G network this year and the live 5G video calls made across various locations in UAE, Etisalat today announced the availability of 5G coverage in the world’s tallest and iconic tower ‘Burj Khalifa’ showcasing readiness of the state-of-the-art 5G network and compatibility with industry leading 5G smartphones.
 
Today’s 5G call is a major step for Etisalat as it proves the network readiness and availability of the 5G  network and services in the country. Etisalat’s landmark announcement earlier in the year also gave subscribers an opportunity to be the first in the MENA region to experience the new super-fast 5G network on 5G ready smartphones. 
 
Etisalat aims to provide customers a unique experience by enjoying blazing speeds and faster response time on the 5G network upto 1Gbps and lower latency to 1 millisecond. At around 20 times faster than 4G and with ultra-low latency, 5G technology will allow users to stream live 4K resolution video anywhere at any time, with virtually no lag. 
 
With 5G technology consumers will witness unprecedented network speed allowing users to enjoy uninterrupted 4K & HD videos, AR/VR services, cloud gaming from anywhere in UAE, advanced robotics, autonomous transport, 3D printing and wearable technologies. 
 
This breakthrough achievement was possible due to the continuous efforts in building and investing in the network to enable connectivity, innovation and bring digital transformation.  Etisalat aims to build 1,000 5G towers across the UAE during 2019 to enable 5G coverage.
 
Etisalat embarked on its 5G journey in 2014 when it started constructing the network with a dedicated team of engineers and specialists dedicated to build one of the most advanced networks in the region.
 
The major milestone for Etisalat and the telecom industry was the launch of the first ‎‎commercial 5G wireless network on 14th May 2018 in the UAE becoming the first telecom operator in the MENA region to achieve this technological breakthrough and set an industry benchmark.‎
‏‎ 
Expo 2020 was also the first major commercial customer in MEASA to partner with Etisalat on 5G in July 2018 delivering a unique and memorable experience for the millions of visitors.‎

Through its network rollout and the pioneering launch of the first 5G handset in the MENA, Etisalat managed to provide UAE customers with an opportunity to experience the power of 5G technology. Etisalat also empowered visitors at Abu Dhabi international airport with indoor ultra-high speed 5G connectivity, making it the first airport in the region with 5G coverage.
