The Ministry of Information and Technology has planned to roll out 5G in 2023. The size of the telecom industry has grown to $16.9. The ministry has confirmed that the target has been appreciated and welcomed by foreign investors as well.
Moreover, during the recent demonstration of the sector’s performance to prime minister Imran Khan the ministry has highlighted the importance of future technology such as 5G for “deep fiberisation” by the Universal Service Fund (USF). Between 2018-22, over 10,000 km of optical fibre cable has been laid all across the country to provide 1,175 towns a high-speed internet facility.
