Posts and Telecommunications Division Minister Mustafa Jabbar today said Bangladesh is set to enter the 5G technology regime from December 12.

"Bangladesh is going to enter the 5G technology regime from December 12 since only a few countries across the globe have entered the technology," he said.

The minister came up with the development while addressing the inaugural function of the five-day 'Technology Fair in Victory-2021' organised by the BCS Computer City at its premises, marking the golden jubilee of the country's independence, said a press release.

Underscoring the need for availability of the latest version of the digital devices under the single umbrella, Jabber said, "Considering the customers' expectations of getting the digital devices, including IoT, AI and robotics, under the same roof, it's important to ensure that customers would get the 
latest versions of the digital devices including computers in the Computer City". 

 Noting that an unprecedented transformation of digital devices is coming in the days to come, the minister said there would no scope to separate computers from mobile. 

Considering the customers' demand for IoT devices including 5G sets, Jabber said, the matters of sales and services need to be revised to meet the demand of new devices along with the current ones.

Chairman of Daffodil International University Md Sabur Khan, Bangladesh Computer Samity (BCS) President Shahid-Ul-Munir and former president of the BCS Ahmed Hassan Jewel addressed the function, among others, with BCS Computer City President A L Mazhar Imam Chowdhury in the chair.
