Iran took a major stride toward launching its 5G network on Wednesday by inaugurating the country’s first 5G cell tower in Tehran.
While overseeing the event via videoconference, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani highlighted the importance of 5G in digital economy and said, “A 5G network will be rolled out in Tehran next week.”
ICT Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi was absent during the videoconference. In fact, he has been uncharacteristically silent over the past few weeks. 
Jahromi is an avid social media user and always hogs the limelight during tech events. His absence in an event, which could have marked one of the main achievements of his ministry, surprised social media users.
