Monday 19 June 2017 | 15:51 CET | News

A 5G coalition will be formed to support the development of mobile telecommunications technology in Hungary, according to local media citing government commissioner for digital welfare Tamas Deutsch. Deutsch, who oversees the government’s Digital Welfare Programme, was speaking during a conference that was organised by the Information Technology for Society Association in Budapest.

This coalition will be formed by almost 50 government institutions, companies, business chambers, universities, research institutes and professional and civic organisations.

The 5G Coalition was officially established on 19 June. The coalition aims to create a 5G development strategy, establish a testing environment that gives Hungary a say in setting global 5G standards and become the first to adopt those standards from 2020, he said.

With this initiative, Hungary wants to become one of the centres for 5G development in Europe, he added. The government also plans to ensure equal access for all Hungarians to the benefits of digitalisation, Deutsch said.
