In a ‘restricted context,’ a successful 5G experiment was held in Peshawar

The Pakistan Telecommunication Company Ltd (PTCL) said in a statement that a successful 5G technology trial was held on Thursday at the Durshal Incubation Centre in Peshawar “in a limited environment on a non-commercial basis” as part of a collaboration between the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Technology Board (KPITB) and the Pakistan Telecommunication Company Ltd (PTCL).

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was also signed between the KPITB and the PTCL to conduct 5G trials in Peshawar.

“Successful remote surgery, cloud gaming, and an outline of projected 5G technology applications in Pakistan were among the demonstrations. Surgeons will be able to do surgery remotely in far-flung regions once the infrastructure and technologies are in place “According to the statement.

Minister for Information Technology and Food Atif Khan, who was present during the testing, stated in a separate statement that KP was the “first province in the country to begin a trial of 5G services,” according to the KPITB.

People used to progress when a road was created in a region, but now they will progress when 5G technology is available, according to the minister.

He claimed that the unfavourable view of 5G technology was “false,” stating that no studies has pointed to “bad difficulties” with the technology.

Khan added that citizen facilitation centres would be developed, that the IT sector would be pushed, and that a 40-Kanal digital complex in Peshawar, as well as an IT park in Abbottabad, a special technology zone in Mardan, and an IT park in Swat, would be built.

He went on to say that the internet had been delivered to 25 colleges in KP, and that attempts were being made to extend it to other colleges and universities.

PTCL tested 5G technology at its headquarters in Islamabad in February this year, achieving download speeds of 1.685 gigabytes per second (GBPS).
