5G networks are expanding rapidly, adding coverage and customers at pace. In this webinar we will look at progress in 5G worldwide since launch almost a year ago, with a focus on European markets. European operators are in an excellent position to capitalize on 5G and create advanced and reliable services. With decent spectrum holdings, excellent 4G coverage, open economies and high levels of online services penetration, the region is a driving force of global 5G development.

The webinar will also look ahead to the next phase of 5G development, linking innovation in network and device technology to the creation of end-user services. Joined by an independent guest speaker from BT/EE in the UK, Heavy Reading Principal Analyst, Gabriel Brown will lead a discussion to bring the audience up to speed on 5G progress and provide a forecast of what to expect in 2020 and beyond.
