In anticipation for the launch of 5G internet service in Morocco, the year 2023 approaches without concrete developments, despite previous unconfirmed expectations of its initiation in 2024.
With the country gearing up to host major global sporting events, notably the “World Cup 2030,” which, according to FIFA requirements, demands high-level internet service, the situation takes on added significance.
In 2022, the first national conference on the 5G system, “5G Event Morocco,” took place, where Jalil Tifari, the event’s president, stated that “the 5G system in Morocco will not see real progress until 2023.” However, this year, the conference has been notably absent from public attention, following an announcement about its second edition scheduled for November 7th in Rabat.
The Authenticity and Modernity Party previously directed a written inquiry to the Minister Delegate in charge of Digital Transition and Administrative Reform, Ghita Mizour, about the launch date of 5G service in Morocco, given its significant importance and economic impact, as well as its adoption by many other countries. According to consistent reports, the implementation of a 5G system requires dedicated infrastructure, building upon the existing 4G infrastructure.
