Agoria warns Brussels radiation rules slowing 5G roll-out

Monday 12 February 2018 | 12:22 CET | News
Brussels will not be the first city in Belgium to get 5G, according to tech industry group Agoria. The standards of the Brussels Region for antenna radiation are too strict and that is limiting operator plans. Agoria believes Antwerp and Liege will get 5G sooner. The European Commission wants every country to have at least one city with 5G in 2020. Agoria said Brussels will not be part of that network and that it may even become a 'white spot'.
