NSN and Mobily announce upgrade agreements

Saudi Arabian operator Etihad Etisalat (Mobily) has partnered with Finnish equipment vendor NSN to enhance its mobile offering and offer improved data and voice services in the country.

The agreement will provide Mobily with improved network connectivity and coverage and make NSN the sole supplier in that region.

NSN will upgrade Mobily’s 2G, 3G and TD-LTE networks in the central region in Saudi Arabia.

“Since our customer base as well as the adoption of smart devices and demand for high speed data services are steadily increasing, we are committed to upgrading and expanding our networks with the latest technology available in the industry,” said Alaa Al Malki, acting CTO at Mobily.
