New 5G Report Outlines Benefits to Transportation, Agriculture, Energy and Rural Connectivity on a National Scale

The report details the role that the Canadian government can play in accelerating 5G deployment across Canada by encouraging innovation in advanced technologies, supporting investment in wireless infrastructure, and enabling collaboration with the communications industry in deploying innovative use cases.

“It’s exciting to watch as the advantages of 5G technology come to life in ways that will benefit all Canadians, regardless of whether they are living in urban or rural areas of our country. Many people assume that new network technology will only benefit residents and businesses in our largest cities, however this report shows that this is clearly not the case. The examples explored in the study prove that 5G has the potential to improve everyone’s quality of life, no matter where they live or work. So long as government policies encourage investment in wireless infrastructure and boost collaboration with communications providers, we will see 5G wireless services make a positive difference in the lives of all Canadians.” – CWTA President & CEO, Robert Ghiz
