Italy’s five technology project is costly Reports
Rome (Urdu Point newspaper latest – APP. June 25, 2020) Experts say that Italy had submitted the Five G technology project for auction in October 2018 with great enthusiasm, but it has become a victim of high prices and red tape. For the new generation, wireless network technology will not only be able to handle more connected devices than existing 4G, but can also be effective for improving users, business, and defense.
Andrea Rangoon, a professor at the Polytechnic School of Business in Milan, told AFP that Italy has always been ahead of its time in the field of mobile telecommunications, being the first country to launch 3G and by the end of 2018, neighboring France. Two years ago, it auctioned off its 5G technology for 6.55 billion euros (3 7.3 billion), which is proving to be a headache for operators due to its high price and sluggish domestic bureaucracy.
According to Enrico Barsotti, deputy head of mobile operator Wind Tray, the auction has led to lower costs for companies in Italy due to higher costs than other countries. He said investing in Italy is a difficult task. Due to the slow bureaucracy, nothing can be said for sure about the time frame of the projects. Barsotti said obtaining the necessary permits depends on laws that vary from region to region and even from one municipality to another.
Gianni Franti, an expert on digital transformation, said that if the government maintains tax incentives for companies investing in digitalization and automation and maintains the average prices of mobile phones capable of connecting, the growth of Five G could resume in 2021. Telecom Italy is offering 5G in nine cities, including Rome, Turin, Florence, and Naples, and will soon do the same in other cities, such as Milan. I have to spread.
