2 years with 5G - experiences, needs and values

Since 5G was introduced in Sweden a few years ago, development has been slow, especially when compared to the US, China and Korea, but even by EU standards, Sweden is lagging behind in 5G network deployment. We need to speed up development as 5G will act as the digital infrastructure for the important innovations of the future, but also because 5G gives us a faster, more stable and more secure connection.
