RIYADH: Saudi Arabia has been ranked second among the G20 group of leading nations for the development of its telecommunication services.

According to global radio spectrum allocation reports, the Kingdom made the largest breakthrough among G20 countries in terms of the amount of radio spectrum awarded to operators in globally identified frequency bands for public mobile telecom services.

Since the end of the second quarter of 2019, the Kingdom has been positioned behind Japan in the sector’s league table.

The Global Broadband Speed Test, Speedtest.net, recently revealed that the Kingdom had succeeded in increasing the average speed of mobile internet services from 9.2 megabits per second (Mbps) at the end of September 2017, to 37.5 Mbps by the end of May this year.
