The first-ever cross-border 5G video call experiment in Pakistan has been successfully carried out.
Federal Minister of IT and Telecommunication Syed Amin ul Haque, using Zong 4G, made a 5G video call to Beijing and enjoyed the best quality of video and audio which is a unique feature of 5G.
The inauguration ceremony of the experimental 5G video call was held at Zong Headquarter Islamabad. Zong 4G became the first cellular network in Pakistan to make an experimental video call by using 5G technology. A 5G network uses the fastest data bandwidth available which can be used in any 5G enabled mobile phone. 5G technology provides the fastest internet speed and the best quality of video calls.
While speaking at the inauguration ceremony, the federal minister said that he felt extremely proud to witness the launch of 5G experimental services, which, in the future, will completely change the technology landscape in Pakistan. He further stated that in the past 2 years, mobile phone users in Pakistan have reached 81 percent and this figure is increasing rapidly.
