Polish operators considering 700MHz collaboration for 5G

27 Sep 2019

A press report from Poland says the country’s four main mobile network operators (MNOs) are preparing to sign a letter of intent with state-backed telco Exatel which could lead to the construction of a shared 5G network in the 700MHz band. Telko.in writes that Orange, T-Mobile, Play (P4) and Plus (Polkomtel) are considering working with Exatel on the project which would see one entity manage all available frequencies in the band and lease capacity on the shared infrastructure to retail service providers. CommsUpdate reported earlier this week that Poland’s Minister of Digitisation Marek Zagorski has said he is in favour of a single nationwide network in the 700MHz band.
