Global Village to be ‘World’s First 5G-Powered Entertainment Destination’

There’s a very good reason why visitors around Dubai’s Global Village will be keeping connected better this season.

Dubai-based telecom company du has revealed it will enable Global Village to be the ‘World’s First 5G-Powered Entertainment Destination’, bringing the fastest data speeds and low latency to all its visitors.

du’s 5G network will also bring new possibilities to the multi-cultural park, including oppurtunities for 4K and 8K video streaming, advanced gaming capabilities, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) experiences.

“By introducing 5G capabilities to Global Village, the latest edition of this event will empower guests to achieve new possibilities and create endless memories as advanced connectivity transforms the Global Village experience dividend,” said chief technology officer of EITC Saleem AlBlooshi.

“We are proud to build on our strategic relationship with Global Village and to be bringing high speeds, low latency, and new use cases to the people of the UAE.”

The fifth generation network came to the Burj Khalifa earlier this year as well. The more places with 5G available, the better.

It’s now easier than ever to head over to the family-friendly destination, as there’s a new app that offers cheaper rates on taxis to and from Global Village.
