EUROCITIES shares statement on 5G deployment in cities with key recommendations for the EU:
The fifth-generation wireless telecommunications standard (5G) is one of the key strategic technologies necessary to boost digital transformation in European cities. It is in cities where 5G experimentation and first deployment takes place, having a considerable impact: allowing for faster, more powerful, and reliable connectivity, data flows and development of new smart city applications while also bringing several challenges.
An agile taskforce was set up with interested KSF members for the elaboration of this statement. Besides providing key recommendations, the statement emphasizes the crucial role city authorities can play to support EU policy makers in developing future fit policies on the growth and impact of new and emerging technologies.
