Ericsson deploying 5G in Slovakia for O2

23 Feb 2021

O2 Slovakia has chosen Ericsson to carry out its 5G network rollout and RAN modernisation. The cellco began trialling 5G technology at a number of sites in Bratislava with several suppliers in October, but has still to announce a commercial launch date. O2 CEO Igor Toth commented: ‘From this moment on, we can fully focus on the plan to expand the availability of a new generation network in Slovakia, which will cover the growing demands of our customers’ data traffic.’ Rival operator Slovak Telekom (ST) launched its own 5G services in mid-December.
