Pakistan will launch a 5G internet network in 2022 to make our telecommunication system quick and smart. Pakistan is planning to roll out the most advanced 5G internet in 2022-23 which will accelerate the download speed 10 times to one gigabit per second (Gbps) and widen economic activities in the country.
In 2019 and 2020 mobile phone service provider companies had carried out a test of 5G services in a limited environment on a non-commercial basis.
The COVID-19 pandemic proved a blessing in disguise as the digital economy widened multi-fold during these testing times in Pakistan. The crisis has prompted regulators and stakeholders to improve digital infrastructure.
The 5G tested speed was 10 times higher than the 4G Internet. Pakistan will Launch the 5G Internet Network in 2022 After the full deployment, Pakistan will join emerging market countries, including Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, India, and Sri Lanka. Experts say that Pakistan will make tremendous economic growth after state-of-the-art technology arrival in Pakistan.
IT Minister confirmed that steps are being taken to improve the country’s technological infrastructure to support 5G technology in near future. He mentioned that currently, 4G technology users are around 1.4 million in Pakistan.
In addition, Haque said that in the upcoming election the electronic voting system would be introduced to ensure transparency. He said that we are also planning to introduce an e-voting system for overseas Pakistanis, referring to “Digital Pakistan,” which is a vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
