Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Adding:

Other versions of 5G ("middle band") use the same frequency bands as existing 3G and 4G networks (that's what's deployed in Europe today), but the throughput will be, maybe a 30-50% improvement over the existing 4G. Definitely not an order of magnitude.

The high cost of 5G equipment (plenty of small cells) and the spectrum auctions make 5G networks a non-trivial decision for telco operators, to be polite. All the hype, that race with the Chinese etc... is to get more money (subsidies, subsidies) to shoulder the cost.

And lastly, about that famous "race to 5G", a shameless self-plug in the beloved series "get your news 6 months early on ET".

The hype cycle? Gartner, a consulting outfit, has been doing that for years. What is not mentioned, is the trap door at the bottom of the "through of disillusionment" where many wannabies techs directly fall into the "pit of forgetfulness" without ever making it to the "slope of enlightenment". C'est la vie...

That must be the wannabe techs who omitted to hire Gartner to show them the path to enlightenment...

Well, the situation varies largely from one EU country to another...

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
