MADRID, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Spain’s Telefonica launched its national 5G network on Tuesday, promising to bring the the next-generation mobile internet service to 75% of the population this year.
European telecoms operators are starting to roll out 5G to consumers and businesses, offering super-fast download speeds for smartphone users and supporting so-called smart devices and factories.
