Pakistan is preparing to launch the most advanced 5G internet service in 2022-23. 5G will get 10 times more speed than the download speed of seconds on 100 MB available on the current 4G service. In 5G people will be able to download at a gigabyte in seconds. Pakistan is planning to broaden economic activities in the country through this. This information has been given in a media report. However, questions are also arising that from where Pakistan will bring money to spend on technology despite the sinking economy.
Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said in its annual report of 2020, Pakistan is developing a comprehensive roadmap for 5G technology in the country. Its objective is to auction spectrum for 5G services in the financial year 2023. The Kovid-19 epidemic has also become a blessing for Pakistan, as the digital economy in the country has grown in this hour of trouble. The Corona crisis has prompted regulators and stakeholders to improve digital infrastructure.
5G test was done in PAK in 2019 and 2020
According to the news of The Express Tribune, Pakistan has started its journey to make the most advanced 5G Internet commercially available to users in 2022-23. The speed of 5G is 10 times more than the 100 megabytes per second (Mbps) speed found on 4G Internet in the world. Earlier, mobile phone service providers successfully tested the 5G service on a non-economic basis in a limited environment in 2019 and 2020.
5G service likely to take 5-7 years more than scheduled
IT and Telecom Minister Aminul Haque said that the government plans to introduce 5G technology by December 2022, but experts still suspect that it will take longer (5-7 years) to develop the next generation of technology in the country . Haq had a test video call through 5G in China and said it was an amazing experience. The sound was sharp and clear, and the video quality was also amazing.
