Virgin Mobile to rollout 5G network in UAE

Virgin Mobile has announced that it is offering its customers the opportunity to be amongst the first to get connected on the new 5G network via a dedicated pre-registration website; www.virginmobile.ae/5g-register. Customers can sign up to be the first to know when they can get a 5G-enabled mobile device.  

The Managing Director of Virgin Mobile UAE, Karim Benkirane, declared, “The world is going mobile and people are consuming more data every year, particularly as the popularity of video and music streaming increases. Whatever we do now with our smartphones we’ll be able to do faster and better on the 5G network, and we want Virgin Mobile customers to be ready to experience this.”

Benkirane further stated, “What’s really exciting is the sheer number of new digital services that will be enabled by the 5G network that we can’t foresee. The internet of things, for example, will make homes smarter, and new possibilities will open for customers through enhanced mobile Artificial Intelligence and virtual reality. 5G will usher a new chapter in the digital world, and as a brand with digital in our DNA, Virgin Mobile is poised to be an innovator at the forefront of this new era.”

Existing and new customers with a 5G-enabled device will be able to benefit from super-fast download speeds and incredible responsiveness available via 5G on the Network. 5G-enabled mobile devices are will be accessible in UAE sometime in June 2019.
