Nepal begins preparations for 5G trial

Kathmandu: The government has said that preparations are underway to introduce
5G technology in Nepal as soon as it is introduced in other countries.

The Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) has informed that various preparations have been started to create an environment for importing the tested 5G in the world market.

NTA has planned to test the current frequencies of 700, 800, 900, 1800, 2300, 2600 and 3300 MHz bands through technology neutral.

NTA has sent to the National Frequency Determination Committee for permission to test 5G by neutralizing the technology in those frequencies. The committee chaired by the Minister of Communications and Information Technology has decided on the use of frequencies.

After the Frequency Determination Committee gives permission, the service providers in the country will be able to get permission from NTA to test 5G by neutralizing the technology on the frequencies used by them.

According to NTA, ita will study the aspects of 5G technology, investment, feasibility of use, return, trade, infrastructure, regulation, etc. through experts. According to the findings of the study, the NTA aims to create an environment that can bring Nepal to the world market with the introduction of 5G.

The government is working according to the concept of ‘Digital Nepal’.

2G, 3G and 4G technologies are currently in use in Nepal. Service providers have invested billions in 4G service. The government plans to introduce a five-year policy to save that investment as well.

5G technology is being developed in the world market now. Experts have been saying that many benefits can be obtained from the high-speed internet service that will be available after the advent of this technology.
