The Hong Kong Management Association was also impressed, bestowing a Best Environmental, Social and Governance Reporting Award and an Excellence Report Award to CK Hutchison. Well done!
Wind Tre takes 5G to the next level for consumers and businesses
It’s simple to say 5G: faster, better. Wind Tre is working with Ericsson to deploy a 5G Core for Standalone so it can deliver new services to consumers and businesses using massive bandwidth and ultra-low latency. Network slicing is an innovation that will allow artificial intelligence (AI) to configure the network to ensure services use the right configuration (e.g. low or high bandwidth, super-fast or just fast enough) to make the most of the network, with not an iota of bandwidth wasted. The 5G Core sits on a cloud infrastructure that will deliver cutting-edge services to Italians for years to come.
Outside the cities, Wind Tre is connecting the people of the countryside
“Connected Villages” is the new initiative to improve the connectivity and capability of people living in rural areas of Italy. Starting in the villages of Valvasone Arzene and Cordovado in the province of Pordenone, the initiative has already reached 24 small towns in less than four months and is expected to expand, supporting the younger generation and elderly people. This includes amplifying and spreading the benefits of earlier Wind Tre programmes such as the NeoConnessi (educating children about responsible online behaviour) and the NeoConnessi Silver project (addressing the needs of senior citizens).
UK Power Networks is investing over £100 million of infrastructure in London and the East and South East of England.

Of the total investment amount, £66 million will be dedicated to Green Recovery scheme projects that will fast-track low carbon at 86 sites, advancing the nation to hit targets set out in the government’s Ten Point Plan towards Net Zero by 2050.
