Faroese Telecom wants to bring 5G to Shetland


Faroese Telecom, which provides communications services to the Faroe Islands, wants to bring 5G connectivity to Shetland and Orkney.

Shetland News reports the company has held meetings with Shetland Islands Council chief executive Maggie Sandison and that similar discussions have been with her counterparts in Orkney.

The theory is that a smaller-scaler operator with experience in delivering connectivity to a remote rural location like the Faroes would be well-equipped to improve the mobile infrastructure of Shetland.
