A group of six telecommunications companies have come together to create the 5G Future Forum, which will work to develop interoperable 5G specifications across the globe.
America Movil SAB de CV (AMX), Rogers Communications, KT, Telstra Corp. Ltd. (TLSYY), Verizon Communications and Vodafone Group PLC are the charter members of the forum.
The group said participants would work to "develop public and private marketplaces to enhance developer and customer access to 5G, and will share global best practices in technology deployment."
Daniel Hajj, chief executive of America Movil, said: "5G is a powerful unprecedented technology. Through this forum, we will create a common platform to enable a global ecosystem of applications to exploit 5G at its full potential, contributing to the transformation of our societies and economies and reaffirming customer satisfaction."
