Frequency Frenzy: Germany sells 5G frequencies - Disaster Tourism: HBO hit 'Chernobyl' causes tourism surge to the site - Waste Wanted: Living off trash
Germany desperately needs to modernize its internet. Four companies are bidding to implement a so-called 5G network. An auction is to be held in the first quarter of this year.
Germany’s 5G spectrum auction began on Tuesday. There's been much talk about Huawei as an equipment provider for the bidders, so it’s worth looking at the Chinese company’s overall German footprint.
United Internet's mobile unit 1&1 Drillisch will apply to take part in Germany's auction of 5G licenses. The firms' billionaire CEO said he wants to shake up the existing oligopoly, but market reaction was negative.
What role can Chinese network supplier Huawei play in building Germany's 5G network? It's a question of faith, but not only — so Berlin is taking its time to give a definitive answer.
