5G is the next standard for mobile broadband communications that is expected to be in use from around 2020. 5G means greatly expanded data capacity, and opens for applications such as “Internet of Things”, where cars, machines and other things are connected and communicate on the Internet.

PTS wants to promote 5G development and takes an active part in the international efforts. At the same time PTS has taken steps to clarify and promote the possibilities for 5G development in Sweden.

PTS has issued a Spectrum Plan for 5G tests and holds a forum where Swedish stakeholders discuss 5G-related issues.
