The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has begun work on the country’s 5G roll-out framework, which is scheduled for April this year. According to media reports, 5G technology will only introduce in Pakistan after the success of their trial service. However, PTA Chairman Amir Azeem Bajwa has approved using the new technology. However he said bids would be made for the launch of 5G technology in April this year. Contrary to popular belief, the next generation of mobile internet is upon us.

5G Speed Tests:

Jazz and Zong have already done 5G speed tests, and the PTA also approved non-commercial tests following government policy guidelines. However, this may not be as big as when 3G and 4G technology arrived in the country. Before these new bandwidths, internet usage was different globally, and data was a distant concept. With the rise of 3G and 4G, google maps and boarding apps have increased.

New Communication Network :

Regardless of how 3G and 4G have changed, many smartphones are familiar with this new communication network. The general idea of ​​5G technology is that it will be faster have better download speeds and uploads. Other implications for this upcoming technology include technological differences and usage requirements that impact telecommunications and other aspects of our society.

Pakistan’s First 5G trial:

Zong conducted Pakistan’s first 5G trial and tested the official 5G video call on January 6, 2020. The china-owned business reached an impressive speed of 1.5 Gigabytes per second (Gbps).

Telecom operator Jazz followed suit on January 4, 2020, gaining 1.43 Gbps speeds. Amid rising temperatures between the two operators, the Information Department announced the establishment of a committee to sell licenses for 5G spectrum licenses in the country. The committee consisted of members from all four telephone companies – Jazz, Zong, Telenor, and Ufone.


The PTA has developed a framework and will be available after successfully testing the next-generation wireless network by telecommunications professionals. However the PTA regularly supports and encourages new and improved technologies services.
