High-tech innovations including the 5G wireless technology will be presented during the 84th Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), which will be held in the northern port city from September 7-15.
According to an announcement, the visitors of TIF will have the chance to experience the potential of the first 5G mobile devices launched in Greece and connect to the pilot 5G high-speed network of telecommunications provider WIND.
“The ‘magic’ of the 5G technology opens a new chapter in the history of the internet and significantly changes the way we communicate, work and entertain ourselves,” TIF-Helexpo, the fair’s organizer, said in an announcement.
