Etisalat CandWs, sparkle to enable 5g roaming globally.


Etisalat Carrier and Wholesale (CandWS) and Sparkle have announced the establishment of a 5G data roaming interconnection between Etisalat and TIM, paving the way for 5G roaming between Middle East and across the globe.

The strategic agreement will set the path for 5G and the global mobile and carrier community. While Expo 2020 was the first major commercial customer in MEASA region to partner with Etisalat on 5G, Etisalat was also the first telecom operator to launch the first commercial 5G network in the Mena region.

Through its network rollout and the pioneering launch of the first 5G handset in the Mena region, Etisalat managed to provide UAE customers with an opportunity to experience the power of 5G technology. Etisalat also empowered visitors at Abu Dhabi international airport with indoor ultra-high speed 5G connectivity, making it the first airport in the region with 5G coverage.
