5G coming to Dubai first, to provide 115 Gbps internet speed

Telecom operator Etisalat will bring in the 5G mobile network to Dubai at the next World Expo in 2020, first in the world. The fifth generation network will provide 115 Gbps internet speed.

DUBAI: Dubai is hosting World Expo 2020. It will see around 25 million visitors during the six-month exhibition, from October 2020 through April, 2021. The Expo theme is "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future". The UAE had won the right to host the World Expo in Dubai.

The Expo in Dubai will need a world-class telecom system and the telecom operator Etisalat will bring in the 5G mobile network. The fifth generation mobile network will provide 115 Gbps internet speed, making the UAE the world's first nation to roll out 5G network.

According to the chief executive officer of the Etisalat Group, Ahmad Julfar, Etisalat has the extensive ICT expertise and digital value proposition to provide innovative infrastructure that will help host the "best Expo that the world has witnessed". He was speaking at the GSMA conference.

The experts say mobile generation systems appear almost every 10 years. The 1G system started in 1981, 2G in 1991, 3G in 2001 and 3G in 2010. The new 5G will come around 2020. The next 5G will be very expensive, said Julfar. This calls for new business model between the telecom operators and internet companies.

Etisalat operates in 19 countries in the Middle East, Africa and Asia and has around 180 million customers.

The Expo Dubai will be serviced by three international airports and a world-class road and transport system to ensure easy access.

A growth in broadband penetration can bring around additional growth in GDP and ICT-related activity is expected to boost the world’s growth by 50 per cent in the long run.
