Saudi Telecom Co. (STC) has officially launched 5G services in Saudi Arabia.
5G is the latest technology providing up to 1Gbps speed, which is way faster than the current 4G, with almost no latency.
The 5G service is initially available only in selected areas of the main cities through 5G Quicknet broadband routers, which will be available in selected outlets.
At this time STC only offers postpaid plans (5G QuickNet Post-paid Unlimited). Prepaid packages will be available later.
The current 4G SIM cannot be upgraded to 5G services. To avail STC, 5G service customers are required to have a new 5G SIM which can be obtained from selected stores.
