5G auction delays can bring advantages - KPN CEO Farwerck

Thursday 28 November 2019 | 15:13 CET | News
"Only talking about 5G is not interesting to me. So we do not have a (specific) 5G strategy. It is a building block for digitisation, part of the major changes in business and society that are coming. We are in this way incorporating the arrival of 5G into our strategy," Joost Farwerck, recently confirmed as CEO of KPN, said at the opening of Telecompaper's Telecom Insights conference on the impact of 5G.
