Telecoms Companies Pledge 5G Across EU By 2020

BT, Nokia, Orange, Vodafone and Deutsche Telekom have all signed a manifesto promising the launch of 5G networks across the EU by 2020. The document states that the businesses involved will commit to launching the 5th generation of the high-speed data network in at least one city per EU country in the next four years. However, they also state that the 'net neutrality' concept of stopping content providers gaining advantage over competitors, a regulation enforced by the EU, stops free competition between companies and limits innovation.
