Italian operator WindTre has plans to launch its 5G network in at least 10 cities by the end of this year, rising to 70 in 2021, according to its chief executive Jeffrey Hedberg. "We will be active in about ten [regional] capitals this year and will reach 70 by 2021," said Hedberg in an interview with QN, before calling on the public administration and regional governments to do their part "because very often site permits take too long to arrive and many mayors are giving in to pressure from the anti-5G movement."
