The improved system can stream 4K footage and 360-degree video feeds "with virtually no lag" from devices such as drones and virtual reality headsets.
According to Etisalat, the new network will be a whopping 20 times faster than 4G, with ultra-low latency and broader bandwidth.
Etisalat senior vice president Saeed Al Zarouni said: “This announcement is significant, with Etisalat setting a global benchmark that supports UAE’s 2021 Vision, which identifies digital technology as one of the top seven primary national sectors.”
More news on what else the improved network will bring will be revealed later this year, according to Etisalat.
