Tribune News Network Barcelona Ooredoo Group is racing ahead on the path to 5G as it became the first company in the world to acquire 5G New Radio (NR) with equipment suitable for corporate customers. The announcement came on Sunday on the eve of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. "Ooredoo is proud to announce its first-in-the-region speeds of 2.3 Gbps with amazing 3.5 ms latency.
