Vodafone Qatar makes live 5G mobile calls

Monday 15 April 2019 | 14:24 CET | News

Vodafone Qatar said it has made the region’s first local and international live mobile calls via a 5G handset powered by its GigaNet 5G network. The calls follows live holographic calls made using 5G at Vodafone Qatar's annual Innovation Day. The operator said the clarity and quality of the video and speed of connection give a clear indication of what customers in the country can expect from 5G once handsets become available later this year.  

The calls mark the latest milestone in Vodafone Qatar’s rapidly expanding 5G roll out plans since switching on its 5G network in August 2018 and receiving the spectrum license to operate 5G commercially from the Communications Regulatory Authority in January.
