5G Networks Roll-out: has Covid-19 Redesigned the Policy Priorities?

Dates:
  • Thu 29 Oct 2020 13.00 - 14.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-10-29 13:00 2020-10-29 14:00 Europe/Paris 5G Networks Roll-out: has Covid-19 Redesigned the Policy Priorities?

The first webinar of the cycle will focus on Covid-19 impacts on the development and on the roll-out of the next-generation systems. While 5G has already been launched in many markets across the world, in most cases coverage has been limited to small, densely populated areas. In the current situation, uncertainties weigh on the rollout schedules defined before the crisis, and actually a number of regulators have decided to postpone long-awaited auctions of the spectrum that would enable operators to launch or expand 5G networks. The webinar will focus on the extent to which the current crisis has redefined the pre-existing EU policy plans aimed at making 5G a reality for all citizens and businesses by the end of 2020.

Chair

Zoraida Frias | Polytechnic of Madrid

Speakers

Jeremy Godfrey | Berec; ComReg

Franco Accordino | European Commission; DG Connect - Investment in High-Capacity Networks
