Another revolution in wireless is coming to Canada. 5G networks have tremendous potential to drive innovation and create jobs – adding as much as $40 billion in annual GDP and 250,000 permanent new jobs to the Canadian economy, according to a recent report from Accenture.

What will the arrival of these networks mean for Alberta? Is Alberta ready?

Rob Ghiz, President & CEO of the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association will discuss the 5G wireless revolution and the potential it holds for Alberta’s future.
