The Mass, the Ministry of Economic Development, published yesterday the rankings of the best design proposals for 5G experimentation. In March last year, the call for competition was published for the five cities where the 5G network will be activated experimentally.
The most sought-after city, Milan and its metropolitan area, was awarded to Vodafone, which clearly exceeded the proposal of the TIM-Fastweb-Linkem-Ericsson Consortium. Wind Tre, on the other hand, was awarded, in collaboration with Open Fiber, the cities of Prato and L’Aquila, ahead of Vodafone and 2bite.
Lastly, the TIM consortium, Fastweb and Huawei Technologies have won the coverage of Bari and Matera, ahead of Vodafone. The operators who have won the race have time until September 19 to send the final version of the project to Mise, which will have to be completed within four years.
