    Regulator says working to prepare 5G infrastructure

    September 7, 2021

    Amman, Sep. 6 (Petra) -- The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) has said that it is working to with telecom sector stakeholders to provide 5G frequency bands as part of its efforts to prepare the necessary infrastructure for the future rollout of this technology in the Kingdom.

    In a statement to the Jordan News Agency (Petra) Monday, Chairman of the TRC Board of Commissioners Ghazi Al Jabour said that the regulator is currently working with the concerned authorities to provide these frequency bands and is coordinating with some non-licensed companies that are occupying 5G-dedicated frequency bands to vacate them.

    The Cabinet, he noted, had formed a committee to coordinate with telecommunications companies in the Kingdom for the potential introduction of the 5G technology, adding that telecom service providers are currently working on 5G infrastructure.

    Al Jabuor indicated that 5G services offer higher Internet speeds and capacities, which is the cornerstone of digital transformation. 5G, he added, supports content services, Internet of things, artificial intelligence and other modern technology trends.

    Additionally, 5G technology props up smart homes, buildings, and cities, autonomous vehicles, road safety and other intelligent transportation systems, 3D video, remote medical services, virtual and augmented reality, and machine-to-machine communications for industrial and manufacturing automation, he added.

    Leveraging this technology drives economic growth and the Gross Domestic Product by creating new jobs and introducing new businesses, Al Jabuor pointed out.

    On the tech's alleged threat to health, Jabuor assured that electromagnetic fields have existed in different forms since ancient times, adding that extensive research has showed no indication of an increase in health risks when exposed to electromagnetic fields below internationally-set levels.
