Zain, the leading mobile operator in South Sudan, has unveiled its fourth generation (4G) cellular broadband network in the capital, Juba, the Ministry of Information announced this evening.

“In collaboration with the National Communication Authority, Zain South Sudan has launched its fourth generation Internet service (4G) in Juba on Friday 05.3.021,” the Ministry Information announced on Friday.

The launch of the advanced Internet technology was attended and witnessed by senior government officials and partners.

4G is one of the fastest and most reliable mobile technology that follows 3G and 2G cellular networks.

The launch of 4G in the world’s youngest country, South Sudan, is not just good news for the people of South Sudan, but it is also a relief to millions of subscribers who rely solely on 3G which is no longer used in major parts of the world.

4G technology builds upon what 3G offers but does everything at a much faster speed.
