Our unique spectrum-sharing technology allows operators to dynamically allocate spectrum to 4G or 5G services based on real-time need. Combined, these features allow operators to achieve national coverage quickly and efficiently, and that’s why this year, Swisscom’s 5G network will reach 90 percent of the population. Regulation stopping innovation 21st-century manufacturing with Ericsson’s combined internet of things and 5G technology | Via Ericsson (2019) There’s some confusion around why 5G rollout in Europe is lagging.

Had the planning permission been given the green light, an additional 1,000 Salesforce staff could have been accommodated at the site, Ronan had claimed. And it was a double blow for the developer, after Spencer Place Development Co Ltd - co-owned by the Ronan Group and Colony Capital - was also refused planning permission for a companion application to increase to 13 storeys a residential and aparthotel plan in the Docklands. The double refusal came in spite of heavy lobbying of Government ministers and Dublin City Council by Ronan and Salesforce over recent months in a bid to ease height restrictions on buildings in the Docklands.

A new home in the green belt to the south of Morpeth, to allow a farmer to look after his alpacas and rare-breed sheep, has been rejected by councillors. Eric Fail’s application, for land south of West Duddo Farm Cottages, around two miles west of Stannington, was refused by four votes to zero, but with four abstentions, at Monday’s (May 13) Castle Morpeth Local Area Council meeting.The new property was to have involved the conversion of an existing stable and summerhouse on the site, which are currently used while caring for the animals – 30 Soay sheep, four ryeland sheep and four alpacas.Planning officers had recommended refusal as they believe the scheme does not meet the criteria for a rural worker’s dwelling, one of the special circumstances which can allow development in the open countryside and green belt.Given the small numbers and the lack of breeding up until now, the council’s independent advisor ‘considers that the labour requirement is … [Read more...] about Countryside home for alpaca farmer refused
