Orange completes 3.5GHz purchase in Slovakia

8 Jul 2020

French-owned Slovak telco Orange Slovensko has completed its acquisition of a 5G-capable 3.5GHz licence from rival operator SWAN. As reported in CommsUpdate last month, SWAN agreed to transfer its rights to 3490MHz-3510MHz frequencies to Orange, with the licence valid until end-August 2025. In mid-2019 Orange acquired 2×20MHz of spectrum in the 3.5GHz range from another licensee, Slovanet.
