Pakistani telecom companies soon to test 5G technology

Pakistani telcos achieve another triumph as the government has finally allowed the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to let telcos conduct 5G trials in Pakistan.

Under the Section 8 of the PTA Re-Organization Act, 1996, the Federal Cabinet has approved the issuance of Policy Directive to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) which will, in turn, allow telcos to conduct the trials while following pre-determined regulations.

Now that the PTA has an official stamp of approval to go-ahead with the 5G trials, it will proceed to develop a framework which all telcos will have to follow if they want to test 5G.

Before the 5G spectrum is auctioned off in a few years, this prior testing is an essential phase. It isn’t clear yet how the PTA will allocate the bands of the 5G spectrum to various telcos but during this testing period telcos cannot charge their customers for 5G services.
