Abu Dhabi, 14 September 2020:  The UAE maintained its Arab and regional leadership in a number of ICT related indicators, according to the Global Innovation Index Report 2020, which included results related to Global Competitiveness indicators for ICT sector.
 
According to the report, the UAE ranked first on the Arab and regional level in information and communication technologies (ICTs) pillar, ICT access indicator, and ICT use indicator. The UAE also ranked first in the Arab region in Generic top-level domains (gTLDs), and in Country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs) (.ae). This reflects the UAE's efforts in enforcing the digital transformation embodied by the government's directions towards being one of the leading countries in the world. 
 
Dr. Ahmed bin Ali, Group Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications, Etisalat, said: “Etisalat is proud to contribute to the UAE ranking first in a number of ICT indicators in the Global Innovation Index 2020.

Etisalat retained ‘The Most Valuable Consumer Brand' in MENA for the third consecutive year by Brand Finance, while Ookla recognised Etisalat for being the fastest mobile network in MENA and broadband network in GCC, Africa and Arabian region.
 
“Digital transformation in Etisalat is at the centre of this strategy and leveraging technologies that can help accelerate this transition to the new era. Etisalat became first telco in MENA in May 2018 to launch the commercial 5G network providing fixed wireless service in the UAE, and the first telecom operator in MENA to enable its customers to experience the power of the 5G network and release the first 5G handset before many others.”
 
UAE is ranked number one for the highest FTTH penetration among all its global counterparts for three years in a row according to the leading industry body FTTH council. UAE also has the highest percentage of mobile internet subscribers, and the highest percentage of internet users per population.
