The way we live and work is about to be transformed as Vodafone Qatar announced plans to roll out its first live 5G network. The stage is set for how 5G will change our lives, enabling exciting new applications such as remote patient healthcare and driverless cars. The way industries operate will be significantly enhanced.

The new 5G networks have incredible speeds but more importantly, ultra-low latency, which means shorter times required to stream data between two points – a hugely important step in local technological advancement.

The 5G network will change how we all connect to people, forever.

A number of planned applications using 5G technology are set to improve the lives millions. With the Middle East’s first World Cup arriving in Qatar in 2022, Vodafone’s 5G network will be able to deliver the ultimate experience for millions of sport fans watching and sharing the action live in person, or accessing it via uninterrupted, super-fast connectivity.

Vodafone is also eyeing up the chance to improve the transportation sector, enabling sophisticated communication between vehicles, traffic management and coordination, advanced driver assistance and ultimately, fully autonomous self-driving. In the agricultural sector, 5G will monitor, track and automate systems at lightning-fast speed, support the development of smart farming and allow farmers to better measure things on a day-to-day basis, remotely. With roll out now well underway, Vodafone Qatar expects to connect its first customers when 5G devices are available. Just don’t be surprised when you can enjoy Time Out Doha via an uber-cool hologram.
