Europe lagging behind US and Asia on 5G - ETNO

Friday 29 January 2021 | 12:43 CET | News
Europe is trailing far behind the US and Asia in the rollout of 5G networks in spite of growing investment from the continent's leading operators, according to a study from Analysys Mason for telecom industry group ETNO. The 2021 "State of Digital Communications" report said market fragmentation and high levels of regulatory restraints have prevented quicker growth even though the number of European citizens covered by at least one 5G network grew from 12.9 percent in 2019 to 24.4 percent at the end of September.
