A "5G Manifesto" from key players in the telecom industry was submitted to EC Commissioner Oettinger with the aim of spurring deployment of 5G infrastructure in Europe.

The 7-page manifesto provides recommendations for a common vision and a calendar for deployment of investments, standards and the synchronized introduction of services in Europe. It underlines the need for spectrum and improved regulatory conditions in terms of local installation of cells, open internet rules which promote innovation, data protection and fair use.

The European Commission is working on a 5G Action plan that will be presented in September that aims at giving Europe the leadership in the deployment of standardized 5G networks as from 2020.

Signatories of the manifesto include the chief executives of BT Group plc., Deutsche Telekom, Ericsson, Hutchison Whampoa Europe, Inmarsat, Nokia, Orange, Proximus, Royal KPN, SES, Tele2 AB, Telecom Italia, Telefonica, Telekom Austria, Telenor, Telia, and Vodafone Group.
