Tuesday 28 November 2017 | 17:54 CET | News

Speaking at the ECTA regulatory conference in Brussels, he said Berec is taking a "holistic" approach to 5G and will consider a range of issues, from the availability of backhaul and infrastructure sharing to the impact of network slicing on net neutrality rules.
