We are delighted to announce that the Final Report from the 5G socio-economic study was published yesterday. Further details about the study can be found on the Commission’s web site - http://ec.europa.eu/newsroom/dae/document.cfm?action=display&doc_id=17802 & https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/news/5g-deployment-could-bring-millions-jobs-and-billions-euros-benefits-study-finds

The study has attracted a lot of interest. Indeed, Jean-Claude Juncker quoted results from the study in his State of the Union address to the European Parliament - http://ec.europa.eu/priorities/state-union-2016_en
