Bulgarian cellcos to start 5G trials in Q3 2019

4 Jun 2019

Bulgarian cellcos are planning to start 5G trials at the end of the summer, following the award of spectrum in the 3600MHz band by telecoms regulator the Communications Regulation Commission (CRC), which is expected to take place in July 2019. The watchdog is said to be planning to grant 100MHz of spectrum in the aforementioned band to the three main cellcos Vivacom, Telenor Bulgaria and A1 Bulgaria (Mobiltel), which will be allowed to undertake testing of fifth generation technology for six months.
