By Ashley Huebner, Jerusalem Post

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is still debating about 5G networks in underdeveloped countries. Most nations are in agreement that developed countries should help out underdeveloped countries in developing 5G networks. Countries are beginning to discuss the issue of education and how it affects these new 5G networks. The nations present in the committee are unanimously confident that they can all work together to form partnerships in helping out the countries in question. 

There’s no question that hard work is being done but more of a matter of what their solutions entail. One of the issues in the Middle East is that while the new technology would no doubt be beneficial, education is one of those obstacles that may be difficult to overcome. Luckily, there are some countries that take this issue into account. Spain, for example, plans on implementing an oversight committee that would focus on the resources that Middle Eastern universities would have for education.

They plan to “make it egalitarian.” Said a delegate from Spain. They're also planning on using NGOs to fund this and would like to use the private sector as well.
