Ingebrigt Lunde (former project manager at TV 2 AS) is engaged as a consultant to set up the consortium.

5G is now a reality and deploying, the potential to change the industry is huge. 5G promises enormous capacity, reliability, ultra-low latency and high speed. This will open up a wide range of opportunities and possibilities for broadcasters, publishers, telecoms and consumers.
