5G: Empowering Recovery and Fighting Misinformation

3 June: Co-hosted by leading MEPs, as well as the GSMA and ETNO, we discussed the role that 5G can play in the coming months, as Europe copes with the coronavirus recession. During the discussion, not only we informed about 5G technology and use cases, but we also discussed the impact that misinformation is having on the public discourse around mobile networks.
