Vodafone Greece (VfGr) began testing 5G in the city of Trikala as part of e‑Trikala, the city’s digital initiative. Part of the project will involve remote driving of 5G-connected cars and working towards 5G-enabled medical surgery. Haris Broumidis, Chief Executive of VfGr, said VfGr will use the city as a testbed for services to be more widely implemented across Greece. The e‑Trikala programme is supported by software developer Luxoft and equipment vendor Huawei Technologies.
