Vodafone CR’s NSA 5G network live in five cities and Prague Metro

5 Oct 2020

Mobile network operator (MNO) Vodafone Czech Republic has launched its non-standalone (NSA) 5G network in the cities of Prague, Brno, Usti nad Labem, Jesenik, and Karlovy Vary, using Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) technology – sharing frequencies between its 4G and 5G networks. In a press release, the MNO’s chief executive Petr Dvorak said: ‘We will expand the 5G signal to other cities in the coming months. We believe that this technology can change the world for the better and that our contribution to the digitisation of the Czech Republic is really visible. However, a truly massive and nationwide 5G expansion won’t really happen without the frequencies that the upcoming auction should offer’. The Prague Morning newspaper notes too that Vodafone’s 5G network is also in the Prague Metro. ‘At the moment, [Vodafone’s] 5G covers the entire section from Dejvicka to Muzeum on the green line, and from Smichovske nadrazi to Ceskomoravska on the yellow line’.
