Integrated Mobile Telecom Co. Ltd. has signed an agreement with Zain KSA to benefit from Zain’s sustainable network infrastructure in order to provide mobile telecommunications services to its customers. This was after Integrated Mobile Telecom obtained the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) license from the Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC).
The agreement was signed by Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Al-Deghaither, CEO of Zain KSA, and Abdul Mohsen bin Abdullah Al-Juwayan, CEO of Integrated Mobile Telecom.
“We are pleased to sign an MVNO agreement with Zain KSA, as this strategic partnership aspires to facilitate and contribute to the growth and expansion of the telecommunications market in Saudi Arabia, which is estimated at about SR69 billion ($18.4 billion). In addition, it will enhance the increasing competition in the interest of society, Vision 2030 and technological development and consumers’ well-being — both individuals and institutions alike — by providing distinguished services and innovative digital technologies, especially with the largest fifth generation (5G) network in the Kingdom and the Middle East,” said Al-Juwayan.
Al-Deghaither, meanwhile, said: “The agreement with Integrated Mobile Telecom is a strategic partnership through which we aspire to provide additional options for users, in line with the sector’s goals led by the CITC, and the goals of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 to transform into a digital society, by enabling the provision of Zain’s infrastructure of towers and frequencies, to a wider segment of users from the Integrated Mobile Telecom customers to benefit from the largest 5G network in the Kingdom and the region.”
Integrated Mobile Telecom will provide virtual mobile communications services under the new license, including voice communications services, internet services, as well as a number of mobile communications services such as SMS, voice mail, media services and others, based on the advanced infrastructure of Zain KSA, which owns the largest network of 5G services in the Kingdom and the region.
