He added that the agreement is the result of several meetings held to reach consensus. The concerned parties discussed technical details related to the 5G service, so as to ensure licensing it in the best manner, and several other items.

Details of the agreement will be announced soon, Sarhan said.

On January 9, 2022, Prime Minister Bisher Al-Khasawneh announced the launch of 5G telecommunication services infrastructure during a press conference at the Prime Ministry, stating: “The government decided to enable local telecommunications companies to establish an infrastructure for 5G services”.

Sarhan had told Al-Mamlaka TV that launching 5G services is “not a luxury”, but rather a necessity and a pillar of digital transformation for future technological development, adding that 5G services support modern services and applications, such as content services, the Internet of Things, AI, and other usages that require fast technology and competition.

Applying the 5G services should help achieve economic growth and help the GDP, in addition to providing various job opportunities, and the entry of supportive companies into the promising Jordanian market.
