5G Broadcast trials in Europe & worldwide
In addition to the 5G Broadcast trial in Vienna, working groups and trials have been set up around the world and in Europe in particular to test the new transmission standard. Tests for researching and studying the technology behind 5G Broadcast in rural regions have thus been started or completed at an international level, including in Germany, Great Britain, Finland, Norway and Columbia.
