Professor Samer Bagaeen discusses 5G on #PlanTalk

Professor of Planning, and MA Urban Planning and Resilience Programme Director, Samer Bagaeen, recently joined Peter Kemp from the Greater London Authority in a discussion titled, ‘5G – A Double Edged Sword?’.

#PlanTalk raises the questions, “How ready are we for this jump when some areas struggle even with 4G? How has Brighton performed as a hotbed for this technology? what technology is going to benefit? What are the planning implications for new masts? Do the social benefits for instance being able to plan for resilience outweigh the environmental impact? There are so many questions around this topic and the technologies linked to it such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and driver-less cars.”
