Though 3G and 4G service in Pakistan is not an old story, but the followers it has gained in such time is phenomenal. Especially, the advent of 3G/4G in Pakistan has changed the living of Pakistani people, from paying bills to shopping or connecting with each other, around everything is changed.

At the same time those who are satisfied with 3G-4G should think twice as 2020 is the year of launch of 5G, and surprisingly Pakistan might be one of the first countries to test latest technology 5G.

Pakistani Minister for IT, Anusha Rehman, recently confirmed with ProPakistani that they are putting in efforts to get 5G testing before anywhere else.


If that happens it will be a great news for the Pakistan to hand the latest technology before the anyone in the world, and for sure it will be taking things to the whole new standard.

On the other hand, Zong cane be the one to get hands on to the 5G as it seems showing some interest to be part of the IMT Advanced Group, which is a group of early operators and vendors who will be testing the 5G services at first in 2020 after its launch.

Zong is also the one to introduce 4G services in Pakistan, and there are some clear chances that they’ll also be introducing 5G in Pakistan.
