MWC RECAP & 5G
13 April 2023
Mobile World Congress has been the go-to event for the telecom industry for years. The event gathers the whole telco ecosystem from global mobile operators, through device manufacturers to technology providers. Although bruised by the recent Covid outbreak, the event is back at full strength in Barcelona at the end of Feb.
Our next virtual event will focus on what was presented at MWC affecting MVNOs - what new announcements have been made to help the MVNO industry to grow, and what our expert speakers have learned from the various exhibitions and demos. As MWC traditionally heavily focuses on network infrastructure developments, our virtual forum will also cover 5G-related announcements and new business models, and eSim Summit’s findings.
