Join IoD Yorkshire as we look at 5G and the benefits it will bring to business
The fifth generation of mobile networks is set to provide businesses with huge gains in speed and capacity.
Our expert panel and guests will discuss issues around data and connectivity at the latest in our series of Harrogate business breakfasts.
Are we keeping up with technology? If not, what is holding us back?
Is 5G the key to unlocking access to the globe? What are the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead?
Can we expect to see superfast coverage on trains and what do advances mean for future technologies such as driverless cars?
