Ethio Telecom has been a pioneer telecom service provider in Africa, serving the nation since 1894. The company has continuously introduced the latest technologies to support Ethiopia’s socio-economic development, playing an enabling role in the overall progress of the nation.

As part of its commitment to realizing the country’s digital transformation agenda, Ethio telecom has been deploying the latest technologies and providing digital solutions to positively impact the day-to-day life and business activities of our society. Today, Ethio telecom is pleased to announce the official launch of our commercial 5G services at 145 sites in Addis Ababa. This follows our earlier pre-commercial 5G mobile technology trial service in Addis Ababa and Adama cities.

The state-of-the-art fifth-generation network (5G) offers the fastest speeds (up to 10 Gbps), low latency (less than 1 ms), and massive communication capability (up to 1 million connections within 1 km2). With such high speeds, superior reliability, and negligible latency, 5G will have a significant impact on industries such as mission-critical services requiring real-time decisions, manufacturing plants, remote healthcare, precision agriculture, self-driving vehicles, IoT, and real-time operations, making them a reality.

The commercialization of 5G service will enable our society to obtain best-in-class digital solutions, improving their experience. It will also play a paramount role for our business customers, enhancing their productivity and efficiency, generating new revenues with next-generation applications, improving operations with real-time analytics, adapting quickly to changes in business dynamics, and delivering secure and fast access to mission-critical data.

Furthermore, the 5G service has tremendous significance for smart home, health services, hospital management, smart agriculture, education, industry/mining, manufacturing, smart airports and travel services, smart transportation & logistics, digital shopping, broadcasting & entertainment, as well as cloud-based 5G gaming.

Our company has commercialized its 5G service at 145 different sites in Addis Ababa and is ready to offer unlimited 5G data, 5G To The Home, and a variety of 5G mobile packages to our esteemed customers. To utilize these diverse services and mobile packages, our customers are required to have 5G-supporting mobile devices and handsets.
