Pakistan has an excellent budding ground for the 5G network. The number of smartphone users is nearly 90 million and it is growing at even a faster pace. In light of the available resources and strong investments from foreign countries, Pakistan is planning to launch a 5G network in 2023. Especially with the advent of Covid-19, the systems have advanced digitally and the possibility of remote work has transformed the entire landscape. Thanks to telecom giants like Jazz, PTCL, Telenor, and Zong, a roadmap for the 5G technologies has already been laid out.
Considering the efforts Pakistan is making to ensure a 5G network by 2023, many potential investors have shown great interest in this matter. One such example is Huawei, the Chinese leading tech company. Huawei has recently shown great interest in the rollout of 5G in Pakistan. The tech giant has shared its expertise to enhance the social development and economic growth in the country.
It is worthy of mention that Huawei maintains an efficient network to develop 5G. It was the first company worldwide to launch the industry-first 5G commercial chip. To this day, Huawei enjoys a position as one of the leading companies that are spearheading the 5G evolution. The company is known for providing efficient equipment for developing the fifth generation (5G) mobile technology.
Huawei’s desire to invest in Pakistan’s network came from Huawei Cloud Middle East and Africa 2022 roundtable in Dubai. There, the Vice President for Global Communications, Karl Song expressed support for Pakistan along with all the other countries that are developing the 5G network. Huawei will send a skilled Chinese workforce that will help Pakistan and other countries achieve their aim of a 5G rollout.
An investment of this level can mean incredible economic growth in Pakistan. 5G network will not just contribute to the mobile networks, it will also help in revolutionizing different industrial sectors. China is developing plans to employ 5G in the B2B domain. Pakistan will also become a successful part of that plan. With ongoing foreign investments, this comes as a big step in a much-needed technological direction.
Apart from increased bandwidth and an up-scaled communication system, Pakistan will also develop the sectors of traffic control, health, manufacturing, agriculture, energy, transportation, education, and tourism. Another prime benefit of the 5G network in Pakistan is the development of the AI sector. The entire world is shifting to incredible AI systems and the 5G network in Pakistan will help the country keep up with the trends.
