SHC seeks answer from PTA on harmful effects of 5G technology.
The Sindh High Court (SHC) has served a notice to the Pakistan Telecommunication Technology (PTA) on 5G technology’s harmful effects on health, Geo News reported Monday.
The court’s notice came during a hearing on an appeal seeking a ban on the 5G technology. During the hearing, the court asked the requester to explain how the 5G technology could be harmful to health and whether anyone had been licensed to roll it out.
“Will the PTA is able to explain whether 5G has dangerous effects on health or not … the world is advancing in information and technology, why should we ban it?”
The court, sending a notice to the PTA, said it would move forward with the actions once it receives a response from the telecommunication official.
In February, Pakistan had achieved its fastest internet data rate with download speed reaching 1.685 gigabits per second during a 5G trial, IT Minister Aminul Haque had announced.
The minister reported that 5G technology will enable a developing technological environment in the country helpful to economic prosperity.
