Saudi Arabia (KSA) ranks fourth in the world in terms of 5G technology and ranks 10th in Internet speed, a Saudi Press Agency report quoting a senior official said.


The kingdom is only preceded by the US, South Korea and China in using 5G, said Undersecretary for Technology and Digital Capacity Development at the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology Dr Ahmed Al-Thinayyan. 


He pointed out that the kingdom has achieved a quantum leap, in terms of Internet speed, in particular, as it jumped from 150th to 10th position. In digital transformation, in general, the expansion of fibre optic networks benefited over 3 million households, he said.
