Slovenia takes first steps towards 5G licensing

21 May 2019

Slovenia’s Agency for Communications Networks & Services (Agencija za komunikacijska omrezja in storitve, AKOS) says it has taken the first steps towards the award of 5G mobile spectrum. Earlier this month the regulator published a draft of its new Radio Frequency Spectrum Management Strategy and invited public comments. Once finalised, the plan will be submitted to the government for approval and this will then be followed by an auction of 5G licences. In accordance with the Government Plan for the use of the 470MHz-790MHz band in Slovenia, AKOS intends to complete the whole frequency assignment procedure by 30 June 2020.
