5G arrives in the UAE

TOLGA AKMEN / AFP

5G has arrived to the shores of the UAE.

Etisalat have announced that users can now experience the super-fast service on its network.

It's currently available in parts of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Ajman. 

They're offering several 5G-ready phones to customers including the ZTE Axon 10 Pro, the Mate20X and OPPO Reno.

5G is around 20 times faster than 4G.

To give you an idea, that means it would take just a handful of second to download an entire HD movie.
