Monday 10 September 2018 | 08:55 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM), Fastweb and Huawei have activated the first 5G antenna in the southern Italian port of Bari, officially launching the second phase of the BariMatera5G project. The 5G data connection was switched on by industry minister Luigi di Maio at the Politecnico de Bari university during the 82nd edition of the Fiera del Levante international fair and marks the transition from the testing phase on "pre-standard" infrastructures to those on "standard" antennas complying with 3GPP non-standalone specifications.
