Report: Quarterly Report of the European 5G Observatory

Quarterly Report of the European 5G Observatory

On 6th of May the European 5G Observatory published the latest quarterly report and 5G scoreboard. The focus of reporting is now shifting from 5G readiness to 5G deployment monitoring. As a result, the score board has been redesigned to emphasize progress regarding 5G network deployment and actual spectrum availability.

As compared to the previous quarter, all EU countries have now launched commercial 5G services in at least a part of the country. The average level of 5G coverage now reaches 64% of population in the EU. However, a significant share of this 5G coverage is achieved using 4G spectrum instead of the 5G pioneer bands. The pioneer bands offer a higher performance potential and will become essential to deliver the advanced 5G services for machine-to-machine communications and the digital transformation of industry.

The 5G Observatory provides a factual source of information on 5G deployment in Europe and complements the Digital Economy Society Indicator (DESI) published by the European Commission.
