Zain Launches VoLTE In Kuwait

Zain, the telecommunications company in Kuwait, launched Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology in Kuwait on its advanced LTE-A network. The service provider already ran the trial to check the readiness of its network.

Zain serves the largest family of subscribers in Kuwait. According to the company, the service will enhance the customer experience on a whole and the connection time will be significantly lower. VoLTE is fully compatible with the following devices — iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus, iPhone SE, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge.

“Customers making connections on the LTE-A network while on a phone call will be able to do so in a smooth manner without having any conflicts in lag time or the existing phone call. The VoLTE advancement technology offers users the chance to perform a clear phone call while surfing the internet in full-speed capacity,” said Zain in a statement released by the company.

Zain is the first telecommunications company that launched the 4G LTE service in Kuwait in late 2012 using the spectrum in the 1800 MHz band. The service provider also tested the Middle East’s first 4.5G mobile broadband technology on its advanced network, reaching a high-speed of 1 gigabyte per second (1 Gbps). Currently, Zain offers LTE in its Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Jordan operations as well as in Lebanon.
