Adrian Baschnonga, EY Lead Telecommunications Analyst, comments on Ofcom's 5G rollout announcement:

“The proposed timetable for 5G trials and commercial launch will be welcomed by mobile operators. It builds on the recent news of planned government investment in the next generation of mobile technology.

“However, industry consensus on spectrum allocation will be vital if 5G rollout is to remain on track, while operators should also carefully assess the specific services that 5G enables in tandem with their technology trials.”
