Telenor Bulgaria starts 5G trials

24 Jul 2019

Telenor Bulgaria has embarked on a series of 5G trials, with the company completing its first 5G video call in the country. Going forward, Telenor will assess different 5G use cases to explore the technology’s capabilities, using equipment provided by Huawei. These 5G experiments will be specifically designed to address precise needs in the areas of production, education, mentoring, the entertainment industry and art. Telenor will also perform demonstrations of 5G technology beyond Sofia, covering a number of other geographic locations across Bulgaria.

TeleGeography notes that in mid-2019 the Communications Regulation Commission (CRC) allocated spectrum in the 3440MHz-3540MHz band to Telenor on a temporary basis, in order to enable the cellco to trial the technology for six months.
