Telecoms & IT

Saudi Arabia is an early adopter of telecommunications technologies. It was one of the first countries in the Gulf to launch LTE, for instance, and is now preparing to roll out even more advanced infrastructure. Services like fibre-to-the-home will soon be on offer, and while prospects for major additional growth in both the mobile and fixed-line voice segments appear limited, rising smartphone ownership is expected to drive data revenues going forward. This chapter contains interviews with Mohamed Jamil bin Ahmed Mulla, 
Minister of Communications & IT; Abdulaziz Al Sugair, Chairman, Saudi 
Telecoms Company; Hassan Kabbani, CEO, Zain Saudi 
Arabia; and Bejad Al Harbi, Chairman, Technology 
Control Company.
