Technical Presentation: Is 5G ready for enterprise & is enterprise ready for 5G?

All 4 UK mobile network operators are busy rolling out 5G, and trumpeting how fast their downlinks are, and how many cities their 5G is now available in. But as with previous generations of mobile technology, the current 5G offering is mostly a consumer-focused proposition. Yet arguably 5G’s biggest value adds should lie with enterprise. So is enterprise ready to grasp the 5G opportunity; how might Covid change this; and will the MNOs work out how to sell something other than airtime to business?

We are delighted to welcome Jay Flynn MBE as host of a special LINX quiz. Jay shot to fame as Lockdown 1.0 began with his Virtual Pub Quiz which went on to set a Guinness World Record of over 180,000 simultaneous participants back in April.

There will be three rounds of 10 questions:

  • International Round (inc. Geography and Food & Drink)
  • LINX & Technology Round
  • Geberal* Knowledge Round

*This is NOT a spelling mistake as watchers of his regular Thursday night quizzes will know!
