Mapping 5G in the Nordic-Baltic countries – Key insights from the Nordic-Baltic 5G Monitoring Tool project, 18 October, 17:30 – 17:50, Policy & Strategy Stage

Initiated in 2021, the Nordic-Baltic 5G Monitoring project aimed to contribute to the development of a more integrated, connected, and inclusive Nordic Region. We developed an analytical tool to track 5G progress, going beyond mapping to showcase actual applications across various sectors.

As we approach the project’s final phase, we’re excited to showcase the latest outcomes and impacts and especially introduce the newly released DigiHUB and the Nordic-Baltic 5G Monitoring Tool – The 5G Data HUB.

The 5G DATA HUB serves as a dynamic 5G data dashboard. It features flexible filtering options that enable the customization of displayed data and metrics. This ensures alignment with the unique needs and priorities of different stakeholders, including industries, local and national policymakers, and regulators.
