Libyan Almadar Aljadeed mobile network has launched 5G service to improve telecommunications in the country with speed reaching 1.5 Gbps a second.
The Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj attended the launching ceremony in Tripoli.
In a speech at the ceremony, Al-Sarraj said launching 5G service takes Libya to the right track of development in the technology and information world, saying it is a turning point in telecommunications that would improve the services provided to Libyans.
He added that despite the current conflict in the country, his government is taking measures to improve living conditions for all Libyans.
Almadar Aljadeed says 5G service is part of its five-point strategy of 2016-2020. It added that they successfully installed the trial network and thus became the first operator to launch this service in the region.
The mobile operator says they aim to install this service in main cities by 2020 and they will allow businesses to have access to LOT service.
Almadar Aljadeed added that with this achievement, it has laid the foundation stone for the digital transformation that will boost the Libyan economy, thanking all state authorities that helped make it happen.
