Globally, the Middle East has geared up for 5G faster than other regions. Indeed, mobile 5G was commercially launched in June 2019 in the Middle East region and in 2018 for fixed wireless services.

5G is commercially available in six countries as of early 2020: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia. Nine players provide 5G services on FWA and/or mobile modes.  

GCC states are leading in 5G thanks to a strong 4G adoption and heavy government support.
