Telecom Italia (TIM), Fastweb and Huawei have switched on the first 5G antenna in the southern Italian city of Matera, part of the pre-commercial trials of 5G networks promoted by the country's Ministry of Economic Development (MISE). The 5G data connection was activated in the city's central Via Carlo Levi and represents the first installation of the BariMatera5G project's network development plan, which expects to achieve 75 percent coverage of the testing area in Bari and Matera via the 3.6-3.8 GHz frequency bands by the end of this year.
