4 Jan 2021

Iran’s largest cellular operator, state-backed Mobile Communication Company of Iran (MCI), is expecting to launch 5G services by the end of the current financial year (20 March 2021). A report from The Tehran Times says that commissioning of the network began last year and a pilot system is due to be switched on shortly. The Iranian government had initially hoped to see commercial services introduced in 2020.
