5G to bring annual EUR 113 bln benefit to EU economy - study

Thursday 29 September 2016 | 12:01 CET | News
The deployment of 5G technology is set to create over two million jobs and generate EUR 113.1 billion a year of benefits for the European economy by 2025, according to a European Commission supported study. Although the total cost of deploying 5G across all EU member states could reach some EUR 56 billion in 2020, the return on that investment could result in trickle-down benefits totalling as much as EUR 141.8 billion a year, according to the year-long study prepared for the EC by InterDigital Europe, Real Wireless, Tech4i2 and Trinity College Dublin's Connect programme.
