RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) has carried out inspection tours of retail shops and branches of telecom companies in coordination with relevant governmental authorities in Taif, Baha, Asir, and Jazan.
Since the Saudi Summer Program 2021 was launched recently, these regions have been witnessing a large turnout of visiting citizens and residents, leading to an increase in demand for telecom services.
CITC’s inspections aim to measure the quality of coverage and ensure the safety of frequencies.
The commission directed all telecom service providers to raise the level of services in these regions to cope with the increasing demand.
It also formed technical teams to write daily reports on the performance of networks in touristic areas.
The inspections are part of CITC’s efforts to improve the quality of telecom services and users’ experience, support the efforts of governmental authorities to encourage national tourism and provide quality services in tourist and recreational sites.
