European cities warming up for 5G kick-off in 2020

Friday 24 November 2017 | 10:15 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
The European Commission and EU member states are working to implement the 5G Action Plan. This includes cooperation with industry through the 5G-PPP. One of its key goals is for each EU state to have at least one '5G-ready' city, to act as a pioneer in 5G development and launch the first commercial networks in 2020. The Commission expects EU member states to announce their cities by the end of 2018.
