The size of the Kingdom and the implementation of its ambitious development program necessitated the creation of a highly efficient postal and telecommunications system.
The Ministry of Post, Telegraphs and Telephones was established in 1976 (1396 AH), taking over responsibility for post and telecommunication from the older Ministry of Communications. The new Ministry immediately set about creating the highly sophisticated telecommunications service which all those in the Kingdom (government, industry, commerce and the public) now enjoy.
In 2003, the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology was established to bring together responsibility for all modern communications technologies.
