The PTCL Group and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Technology Board (KPITB) conducted 5G tests in Peshawar under the auspices of the Department of Science and Information Technology. During the demonstration, remote surgery, cloud gaming, and upcoming 5G applications in Pakistan were showcased. As soon as the infrastructure and systems are operational, surgeons will be able to perform surgeries in far-flung areas remotely.
5G enables a new kind of network which aims to connect virtually everything, including machines, objects, and devices. The technology would provide remote regions with better medical and healthcare facilities. In addition, the project will also provide international-level education opportunities for less-developed areas of Pakistan.
