The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) has expressed that Jordan is preparing to introduce 5G cellular network technology in a move that aims to make the country a front runner in bringing advanced services to the market.

According to the chairman of TRC, Ghazi Jabour, the commission spoke to the country's three mobile telecommunications service providers in Zain, Orange and Umniah. The discussions entailed the conducting of technical experiments to operate 5G technology using the 3,640-3,700MHz and 3,740-3,800MHz frequency bands.

In a press statement, Jabour pointed to the TRC's keenness to provide the necessary support for the implementation of these experiments. Furthermore, he noted that this comes under royal directives to create an investment environment capable of providing services and boost partnership with the private sector.

As far as the TRC is concerned, it is also keen on preparing the requirements and appropriate environment to accommodate 5G services in the local market. The goal is to introduce these services in the near future and make them available to users at a reasonable cost. 5G is marked by its high speeds and Jabour went on to say that the network, in addition to supporting the concepts of the fourth industrial revolution, will also help provide services and applications in the health, education, transport and smart cities sectors.
