Wind Tre aiming to begin 5G network deployment by end-2019

Monday 19 November 2018 | 15:26 CET | News
Italian operator Wind Tre is eyeing late 2019 as the launch date for its first commercial 5G networks, reports Light Reading, citing the company's chief technology officer Benoit Hanssen. The 5G rollout is expected to reach the "first parts of the country" by the end of next year, said Hanssen at the Wireless User Congress of network partner ZTE, even though 5G-enabled smartphones may not be commercially available until 2020 or 2021.
