Jazz, Pakistan’s largest cellco by subscribers, has successfully tested 5G technology, the company has confirmed via posts on social media. The tests were conducted in partnership with Chinese vendor Huawei and reportedly achieved downlink speeds of 1.4Gbps. No further details were disclosed by the operator, however. As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, sector regulator the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) published guidelines in July 2019 for the allocation of temporary licences and spectrum for testing technologies such as 5G.
