Dutch municipalities call for govt support on 5G

Rural municipalities are calling for the Dutch government to make mobile operators ensure there is adequate 5G coverage in rural regions. P10, the association of rural municipalities, added however that it does not want 5G to become an alternative to the deployment of fibre in rural areas. In previous auctions for frequency licenses, namely for 3G and 4G networks, outlying areas have all too often ended up in second place, according to Theo Meskers, a member of the Hollands Kroon municipal government and member of the board at P10.
