Europe to straggle Japan, China, US and Korea in 5G adoption stakes


Re: I still don't understand

"Technologically 5G is essentially an upgrade of 4G so deployment for the networks should be easier."

Huh? In order for the promised speeds to be delivered, 5G requires a LOT more "towers" (they aren't really towers, but serve the same function), and requires fiber to be installed to them. It isn't an "upgrade" to 4G, but the installation of an entirely new system.
