The European commission is working on a new project that aims to offer free Wi-Fi to citizens in the bigger European citie, by 2020.
The project consists of two parts: one, the creation (installation/deployment) of free Wi-Fi hotspots throughout Europe and two, the propagation of the 5th generation wireless system (5G).
With the ends to propagate 5G in Europe, European regulations have established that at least one city per each European country should be equipped with the 5th generation wireless system. This propagation plan will be put in place in 2018, according to the European Commission.
The European Commission sees even beyond the objectives of the regulation and hopes that by 2025, 5G will be propagated everywhere, particularly in train stations, airports, and other important public spaces. The benefits from 5G deployment in Europe is estimated to be €113.1bn annually by 2025.
