Some of the world's largest telecoms companies have signed a 5G manifesto, aimed at driving forward the deployment of next-generation mobile networks.

The manifesto pledges to launch fast 5G mobile networks in every country within the European Union by 2020.

However, it also says current net neutrality regulations could hamper innovation and cause "significant uncertainties".

The signatories include BT, Nokia, Orange, Vodafone and Deutsche Telekom.

The concept of net neutrality refers to all internet data traffic being treated equally, with no content provider able to gain an advantage over another.
