The government would spend NT$6 billion (US$196.6 million) on a five-year project to boost the development of intelligent transportation systems in the 5G era, Minister of Transportation and Communications Lin Chia-lung (林佳龍) said yesterday.

Lin made the announcement at the International Green and Smart Mobility Forum in Taipei, hosted by the Taiwan Institute for Sustainable Energy together with the Telecommunication and Communication Foundation.

The government would hold an auction for 5G licenses at the end of this year, and next year would be the first year of 5G service in the nation, Lin said.

Unlike 4G technology, 5G allows ultra-high-speed data transmission, ultra-reliable low-latency communications and massive machine type communications, he said, adding that the transmission latency could be reduced from 100 milliseconds in 4G to within 10 milliseconds in 5G.
