14 September 2023: Jeanette Whyte, Head of Public Policy, GSMA APAC presented and moderated a session on Regulatory approaches on 5G Rollout in APAC. During the session, the panel shared their experiences of successful enablers of 5G, which included: implementing technology-neutral and simplified licensing procedures; timely approvals and low-cost Rights of Way; effective predictable and transparent spectrum policy to meet future connectivity demand by ensuring access to spectrum under the right conditions and a holistic whole-of-government approach to ensure the realisation of the benefits of 5G.

Ms Whyte concluded that the diversity of ideas and the diversity of 5G maturity is a great opportunity for APAC to be a region for mobile innovation. However, success requires nurturing, and the need to learn from success and mistakes of the past by sharing best practices and 5G use cases. She encouraged participants to download GSMA’s recently launched report “How 5G is Transforming APAC”, which contains ten case studies highlighting the utility and versatility of 5G technologies.
