PAKISTAN NEWS: Pakistan will launch 5G internet network in 2022-23:Report

Pakistan plans to roll out 5G high-speed internet by 2022-23 that will accelerate download speeds of up to 10 times per gigabit per second (Gbps) and boost economic activity in the country, a media report said on Sunday.

Pakistan is launching a broad roadmap for 5G technology in the country. It aims to sell “the spectrum of 5G services for the 2023 financial year,” the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said in its 2020 annual report.

The Covid-19 epidemic has proved to be a blessing in disguise as the digital economy has grown exponentially during these tests in Pakistan. The crisis has prompted regulators and stakeholders to develop digital infrastructure.

Pakistan has embarked on its journey to make the world’s most commercial 5G available to consumers by 2022-23, reports the Express Tribune.

Test speeds are ten times higher than 100 megabiters per second (Mbps) on the world’s 4G internet, it said.

Earlier, the telephone service provider provided successful testing of 5G services under a limited and non-commercial environment in 2019 and 2020.

Federal Minister for IT and Telecommunication Aminul Haque said the government had planned to introduce 5G technology in December 2022, but experts still believe, believing the country will take too long (5-7 years) to roll out next-generation technology.

Haque made a 5G test video call to China and said it was a great experience. The sound was clear and the video quality was also good, the report said.
