GSMA calls for WRC-19 to back 5G mmWave release against protectionist space sector

Tuesday 30 July 2019 | 15:23 CET | News

Its report 'Regional Spotlights: Impact of 5G mmWave' says releasing this capacity would create USD 565 billion of economic expansion, or 2.9 percent of global GDP growth by 2034. Its release needs the backing of the forthcoming WRC-19 meeting, it said.
