Tuesday 4 September 2018 | 10:04 CET | News
The Spanish government is set to offer EUR 20 million in funding for 5G pilot projects and will launch the corresponding call by the end of the month, reports EFE, citing Spain's director of telecommunications and information technologies Roberto Sanchez. The grants will help operators set up trial 5G connections after the government raised around EUR 438 million in its recent auction of 200 MHz of spectrum in the 3.6-3.8 GHz band for 5G use.
