Zain prides itself for being the only telecommunications company in Kuwait that offers its customers various telecommunication solutions while providing the best mobile services experience in town. We are aware that the competition for quality internet services is increasing, and by partnering with a leading global ICT solutions provider such as Huawei to launch the first Joint Innovation Center, we are reassuring our utmost concern in offering latest technologies in Kuwait. The center aims at enhancing the overall LTE experience throughout Zain's Middle East networks, allowing customers to browse the internet through their smartphones faster than before. Zain looks very positively on collaborations with successful outcome like Huawei and plans to pursue further partnerships to ensure that its customers receive the best services."
