LOS ANGELES-Thursday 24 October 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

LOS ANGELES-Thursday 24 October 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- A clash between the US and Europe over 5G’s future development at The World Radiocommunication Conference 2019 (WRC-19) – taking place in Egypt from 28 October to 22 November 2019 – could risk $565bn of economic expansion globally over the next 15 years, warned the GSMA today.

However, efforts by Europe to constrain the use of these critical frequencies due to claims of potential interference with some space services has 5G’s future hanging in the balance.
