The Tunisian government sees 5G as a way of speeding up the digital transformation of several sectors of the economy, including agriculture, education, transport, etc. The executive has set November 2024 as the launch date for ultra high-speed broadband in the country.

Tunisia will benefit from South Korea’s expertise in deploying 5G. This is one of the clauses of a partnership memorandum of understanding signed between Nizar Ben Neji, the Tunisian Minister of Communication Technologies, and his South Korean counterpart Lee Jong Ho. The agreement was signed on the sidelines of the Global Forum of ICT Leaders, held in Seoul in parallel with the first Korea-Africa Summit, from Tuesday 4 to Wednesday 5 June.

The signing of this MoU comes a few weeks after Tunisia unveiled its roadmap for the deployment of 5G. According to the roadmap, licensing and the commercial launch of ultra high-speed broadband are scheduled for September and November 2024 respectively. Some Tunisian telecoms operators have already tested the latest-generation mobile technology.

The advent of 5G is part of the implementation of Tunisia’s “National Strategy for Digital Transformation 2025”. The main aims of this strategy are to accelerate the digitisation of the public sector, secure national cyberspace, guarantee digital sovereignty and establish a climate of digital confidence that is essential to the implementation of digitisation projects.

Ultra high-speed broadband should facilitate the use of smart homes, smart cities, e-learning, e-government, 3D video, telemedicine, virtual and augmented reality, streaming, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), etc.
