Kassan was joined on stage by AT&T Communications CEO John Donovan, where they discussed AT&T's work to make 5G – what Donovan calls a “gamechanger” technology – a reality. The two discussed the recent launch of AT&T's 5G Evolution network, as well as AT&T's work to make Rush Hospital in Chicago the first 5G-enabled hospital. Following their discussion, Philip Thomas, chairman of Cannes Lions, moderated a panel discussing the possibilities of 5G.
