GSMA supports European Commission’s efforts to accelerate 5G development in Europe

Brussels: The GSMA announced its support of the “5G Manifesto for Timely Deployment of 5G in Europe”, which was presented at a meeting today between Commissioner Oettinger and CEOs from across the telecommunications and applications industries. The 5G Manifesto is designed to foster collaboration between companies in the telecommunications industry and key vertical sectors, facilitate the development and growth of the European digital ecosystem, and encourage an investment-centric policy framework.

“As mobile technology progresses towards 5G, Europe has a critical opportunity to reclaim a leading digital role and extend fast mobile connectivity to all of its citizens,” said John Giusti, Chief Regulatory Officer, GSMA. “Because 5G is still a nascent technology, the steps we take today to foster an enabling environment will be crucial in ensuring the future success of this technology and in re-establishing Europe’s position as a leader in innovation.”
