Kuwait’s Mobile Providers Get OK For 4G LTE Services

Zain, VIVA and Wataniya Telecom will operate the LTE system via their respective frequencies within the range of band 3 1800 MHz against a license fee of KD 250.000 to be paid in advance. That is decision of Ministry ot Communications. 

Minister also noted that he has also adopted a decree to realign the frequency range for mobile companies of band 8, 900 MHz and to increase the frequencies allocated for each of Wataniya Telecom and VIVA to 10 MHz, and to decrease that of Zain to 14 MHz.

The decision ensures equitable distribution of the frequencies among the companies and puts an end to Zain’s dominance of the frequencies in this regard, due to the fact that the company was the first mobile operator in Kuwait.
