  • A 5G Future: Not Just Smoke and Mirrors

    What are the necessary and urgent next steps to build out nationwide full 5G networks in Europe? What benefits will the full 5G coverage bring to Europe’s citizens and businesses? What needs to happen so that 5G becomes a thriving platform for innovation and competitiveness across Europe?

    Ensuring all European businesses and citizens have timely access to 5G coverage is vital to ensure a well-functioning and competitive single market. This is due to fact that connectivity will be an increasingly critical input for economic innovation and social wellbeing. However, building a 5G network only for coverage is not enough. Europe needs a mid-band deployment allowing for full 5G performance. This is the way leading markets are deploying 5G today. At the same time, if Europe wants to lead in the Edge Cloud technologies, high performing 5G networks are a prerequisite.
