Dialog Axiata on Wednesday announced the launch of 5G roaming that would enable Dialog subscribers to roam on 5G networks while overseas.
With 5G outbound roaming, Dialog customers with 5G compatible handsets will be able to enjoy data speeds up to 1 Gbps while roaming with networks partnered with Dialog for 5G roaming services. Dialog 5G roaming service will be initially available with four operators in three countries at launch, namely, China Mobile in China, Hong Kong Telecom in Hong Kong, and Far EasTone and T-Star (Vibo) in Taiwan, according to a company media release.
Dialog, having the widest 4G roaming network in South Asia with 369 operators in 150 countries, will now expand the 5G roaming footprint providing a world-class data roaming experience to its subscribers. 5G connectivity also offers ultra-low latency, which will enable major breakthroughs in areas such as Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, artificial intelligence, and next-generation entertainment.
Supun Weerasinghe, Group Chief Executive officer of Dialog Axiata PLC said “We are excited to launch 5G outbound roaming for our subscribers, another first, not only for Sri Lanka but also for the entire region. 5G roaming radically transforms the connectivity experience of our roamers overseas. With the increased availability of bandwidth, our customers will be able to enjoy the next generation 4K mobile video live streaming, AR navigation, VR gaming, and many more next-generation applications while roaming overseas.”
On the home front, Dialog extended its trial 5G Network at more locations in Colombo, Kandy, and Galle, where subscribers can register their 5G device on www.dialog.lk/5g to experience the limitless power of 5G.
