Sometime back I posted about the local operators (Zain, VIVA, Wataniya Telecom) to launch 4G LTE network in Kuwait soon, however I wasn’t sure who will be the first to actually launch it. A reader to our blog has spotted an ad for Zain (Shuweikh branch) stating that they are launching the 4G LTE for the first time in Kuwait. What I did is call the call center to confirm it, they said it’s only available for the data lines and not mobile phones, but they said the speed is 42 Mbps and from my previous understanding that 4G LTE download speed is 100 Mbps? So I’m little confused here.
The guy at the call center said that I’ve visit their branch to get further details, my guess that Zain will be the first to launch the 4G LTE for mobile phones in Kuwait. As for pricing, they said the 42 Mbps costs 24 KD/Month with 35GB download capacity and KD33 for the 80GB cap.
