Belgian business leaders call on Walloon govt to support 5G development

Thursday 1 April 2021 | 09:55 CET | News
Belgian industry groups Agoria and UWE along with several of their members have called on the government of Wallonia to embrace 5G and start supporting development of the new mobile technology. While pilot projects are underway already in the north of Belgium, the southern region has been reluctant to support the technology due to health concerns in the local population. The industry groups published an open call in the newspaper L'Echo, saying the Walloon government needs to do more to support business innovation and adoption of 5G.
