Purpose of 5G towers

Jane made this Official Information request to Chris Hipkins

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Jane to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Jane

Dear Chris Hipkins,

I would like to know:
- how the NZ government is implementing Agenda 30? What specific plans do you have in place to achieve this?

- why is NZ the pilot country for AI? What measures are you taking to implement AI? What is the 10 year plan for bringing AI into our community and what will life look like for kiwis eg “smart cities?” And NEC collaborations?

- what is the purpose of the 5G towers and phased array beam-forming in NZ? What is this technology being used for currently?

Yours faithfully,
