5G to be launched at the end of 2021: Joy

 Prime Minister's Information and Communication Technology Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy has revealed the launching of 5G service in the country to take place at the end of this year.

  "We are aiming to launch 5G (and) planning to pilot it at the end of this year," he said at a business roundtable in New York.   The government is pledge-bound to provide broadband internet to the last mile, he said, adding Bangladesh actually doesn't a have a shortage of capacity and bandwidth.

  "We have plenty of capacity and plenty of fibers (Optical fiber)," he said, noting that the bottleneck being faced is the last mile connection.

  Joy observed that people (users in the last mile) are not connected with the internet through fixed lines rather they use mobile internet.

  He continued, "So, the challenges we face is spectrum incapacity. Because of our population density, we need a lot of spectrum and just shared additional spectrum in auction, and we are in the process of freeing more spectrum for the mobile operators."

   Mentioning that they've launched 4G a few years ago, he said ".

. . we are hoping that the additional spectrum will allow the mobile operators to take 4G to the rural areas (last mile)."
